I believe with a firm and lively faith
that in this adorable sacrament are Thy body and blood,
soul and divinity.
I believe that in this consecrated Host
I shall receive that same body
which was born of the most pure Virgin Mary
which suffered so many pains and torments for love of me
on the Way of the Cross
and on Calvary,
and which rose gloriously the third day from the dead.
I believe that I shall receive God
I adore Thee, O my God, as my Creator,
my Preserver, my Redeemer, and my Judge,
truly present in the Holy Eucharist.
Divine Host, I adore Thee
with the angels
who fill the sanctuary
and hover over the tabernacle
as they hovered over the cave of Bethlehem
in the Holy
I adore Thee, my God,
with the Blessed Virgin,
and in union with all the saints.
Lord and Master of the universe,
Who hast fixed Thy dwelling amongst men,
I adore Thee with profound gratitude.
O my Jesus, bless this temple
wherein Thou residest,
but still more the heart that I offer Thee
as a living abode and place of rest.
Deign ever to inhabit it by Thy grace
and Thy love,
and may my sins never banish Thee from it! Lord,
I have a firm faith,
but do Thou strengthen my faith,
and animate it so that it may produce in my soul
deeper sentiments of adoration
Good Lord, increase my faith
that I may love Thee more,
and be more generous in my sacrifices for love of Thee
and for the love of my neighbours.
