To Jesus, truly present in the Blessed Sacrament;
to Mary, Mother of the Church, who was His first adorer;
to those visitors who come to this chapel:
to increase their awareness of the Real Presence of
Christ in the Blessed Sacrament;
to draw closer to Him through this awareness;
to profess it through prayer, praise and adoration;
to bring greater honor and glory to God through the acknowledgement of their belief in the Real Presence.
Peace of Christ be with you.
Suggested Prayer #1:
Give Me Thy Grace
Give me Thy grace, good Lord, to set the world at naught, to set my mind fast upon Thee, and not to hang upon the blast of mens mouths. To be content to be solitary. Not to long for worldly company. Little and little utterly to cast off the world, and rid my mind of all the business thereof. Not to long to hear of any worldly things, but that the hearing of worldly fantasies may be to me displeasing. Gladly to be thinking of God. Piteously to call for His help. To lean unto the comfort of God. Busily to labor to love Him. To know my own vility and wretchedness. To humble and meeken myself under the mighty hand of God. To bewail my sins passed. For the purging of them, patiently to suffer adversity. Gladly to bear my purgatory here. To be joyful of tribulations. To walk the narrow way that leadeth to life. To bear the cross with Christ.
To have the last thing in remembrance. To have ever afore mine eye my death that is ever at hand. To make death no stranger to me. To foresee and consider the everlasting fire of hell. To pray for pardon before the judge to come. To have continually in mind the Passion that Christ suffered for me. For His benefits incessantly to give Him thanks. To buy the time again that I before have lost. To abstain from the vain confabulations. To eschew light, foolish mirth and gladness. Recreations not necessary to cut off. Of worldly substance, friends, liberty, life, and all, to set the loss at right naught for the winning of Christ. To think my worst enemies my best friends. For the brethren of Joseph could never have done him so much good with their love and favor as they did him with their malice and hatred. These minds are more to be desired of every man, than all the treasures of all the princes and kings, Christian and heathen, were it gathered and laid together all upon one heap.
