Prayer to Jesus in the Eucharist
The Word was made flesh.   Jn. 1.14

  • Very simple words that revel the infinite love of the Trinity Who, from eternity, have thought that they, the Trinity come and live in the hearts of the children.
  • In the Old Testament many times, You, O Lord have tried to prepare the people to accept and believe in the Eucharist.
  • With Your Apostles and disciples you have manifested clearly Your plan of love.
  • Before leaving this world, You gave us forever, Your living, Body and Blood under the species of bread and wine.
  • You gave us the Eucharist and commanded your ministers to celebrate the gift of Your Body and Blood because You want to live in us and transform us in You.
  • Unfortunately many doubts and heresies have tried to make us unbelievers of your presence and look upon adoring You as useless.
  • But You, Father and Brother, through Your many wonderful miracles have proved that You are really there in the Consecrated Species.
  • Your love for us has preserved Your Sacred Wounds in heaven, but You wanted that Your Suffering Heart be present and alive in the Eucharist also.
  • Father, forgive our weak and poor faith. Forgive the many profanities committed against Your Sublime Sacrament.
  • Help the Pope, Bishops, Priests and Christians to understand, to worship and to love this mystery, not alone in their words but in their very holy lives.
  • O Lord, through the intercession of Your Holy Virgin Mother, the first living tabernacle, we beg You, to make our faith strong, firm and joyful, so that we will be able to live in Your eternal communion in heaven.

        Amen.
