O Holy Tabernacle!
Thou dost enclose the precious Bread of heaven,
the food of angels,
the eucharistic manna
of the soul.
My heart longs and signs for Thee,
and gentle Jesus,
Who art hidden in the Blessed Sacrament!
Thou art my Lord, my God, and my all,
and Thou wilt deign to come to me this day in holy communion. I adore Thee profoundly,
with the angels
who surround Thy altar-throne of mercy and compassion; I bless Thee;
I thank Thee for all the graces I have received through the Holy Eucharist; I am sorry for having offended Thee;
I love Thee now with all my heart.
I wish to offer this holy communion
for all the offences that have been committed against Thee
in the sacrament of Thy love,
and especially in atonement for my own sins and negligences. I have also some other particular intentions and petitions which I now recommend to Thy sacred Heart
(Mention your intentions here...),
and I shall approach the Holy table today
with the greatest confidence that thou, O Lord,
wilt grant me all my requests.

Accept Lord, this my emptiness,

Thy Light, Thy Love, Thy Life,

and over-flow the chalice of my heart
into the hearts of all with whom I come in contact ... continue reading
