A Collection of Prayers for Perpetual Adoration

From Various Sources


Angel's Prayer At Fatima

"Most Holy Trinity; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit -- I adore
Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the most precious body, blood, soul
and divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the
world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifferences
whereby He is offended. And through the infinite merits of His Most
Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart Of Mary, I beg of Thee the
conversion of poor sinners."



Blessed Sacrament Chaplet

BLESSED SACRAMENT BEADS
These consist of a medal of the Blessed Sacrament and thirty-three
beads, recalling the thirty-three years of Christ's life on earth.

On the medal one makes a spiritual communion as follows:

As I cannot now receive Thee, my Jesus, in Holy Communion, come
spiritually into my heart and make it Thine own forever

On each bead say:

Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, have mercy on us!

(Source: "My Treasury of Chaplets" by Patricial S. Quintiliani)



A Short Visit to the Blessed Sacrament Before Meditation

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.†Amen.

I place myself in the presence of Him, in whose Incarnate Presence I am before. I place myself there.

I adore Thee, O my Saviour, present here as God and man, in soul and body, in true flesh and blood.

I acknowledge and confess that I kneel before that Sacred Humanity, which was conceived in Maryís womb and lay in Maryís bosom; which grew up to manís estate, and by the Sea of Galilee called the Twelve, wrought miracles, and spoke words of wisdom and peace; which in due season hung on the cross, lay in the tomb, rose from the dead, and now reigns in heaven.

I praise, and bless, and give myself wholly to Him, Who is the true Bread of my soul, and my everlasting joy.

(by John Henry Newman)



Our Lady of Mt. Carmel - Morning Offering of Reparation

O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
(here kiss your Brown scapular) and in union
with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass being offered
throughout the world, I offer You all my prayers,
works, joys and sufferings of this day in
reparation for the offenses committed against
the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for my sins and
the sins of the whole world.



Chaplet of The Divine Mercy

Say it on the Rosary beads.

Sign of the Cross
1 Our Father
1 Hail Mary
1 Apostles' Creed

On large beads:

"Eternal Father we offer you the body and blood, soul and divinity, of your dearly beloved son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world."

On the small beads:

V: "For the sake of His sorrowful passion"
R: "Have mercy on us and on the whole world"

End with (repeat three times):

"Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world"

(Source: St. Faustina was given this by our Lord. )



Sanctity of Life

My God, we adore You here in the Blessed Sacrament.
As we kneel before You, we recognize You as the Creator of all
Life. We thank You and praise You for the lives you have given to
us and to those we love. Give us a true and lasting respect for all
life, for we recognize it as coming from You. We pray for all who
have suffered or died as a result of disrespect whether that
suffering and death has come as a result of abuse, war, gossip,
or abortion. We pray for an end for all disrespect of life. As we
kneel before You we ask You to forgive all those who do not respect
the sanctity of life. We repeat the words you spoke as you hung
on the cross, 'Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.'



Stay with us

"Stay with us today, and stay from now on, every day, according
to the desire of my heart, which accepts the appeal of so many hearts
from various parts, sometimes far away... Stay that we may meet You in
prayers of adoration and thanksgiving, in prayers of expiation and
petition to which all those who visit this basilica are invited...
May the unworthy successor of Peter and all those who take part in the
adoration of Your Eucharistic Presence attest with every visit and make
ring out again the truth contained in the Apostle's words: 'Lord, you
know everything. You know that I love you.' Amen".

(Source: On December 2, 1981 Pope John Paul II inaugurated perpetual
adoration in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel of St. Peter's Basilica with a Mass.
At the end of the Mass following exposition of the Blessed Sacrament he prayed,
in part: (see above) (L'Osservatore Romano, Dec. 14, 1981))



Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

* Adorable Heart of Jesus, the tenderest, the most
amiable, the most generous of all hearts, penetrated with
gratitude at the sight of Thy benefits, I come to consecrate
myself wholly and unreservedly to Thee! I wish to devote all
my energies to propagating Thy worship and winning, if
possible, all hearts to Thee. Receive my heart this day, O
Jesus!

Or rather take it, change it, purify it, to render it
worthy of Thee; Make it humble, gentle, patient, faithful and
generous like Thine, by inflaming it with the fire of Thy
love. Hide it in Thy Divine Heart with all hearts that love
Thee and are consecrated to Thee; never permit me to take my
heart from Thee again. Let me rather die than grieve Thy
Adorable Heart. Thou knowest O Heart of Jesus, that the
desire of my heart is to love Thee always, to be wholly Thine
in life and in death, in time and eternity. Most Sacred
Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us. Sacred Heart of Jesus, I
trust in Thee.



Hail to Thee, True Body

(A Prayer to our Eucharistic Lord)

Hail to thee, true body born
From Virgin Mary's womb!
The same that on the cross was nailed
And bore for man the bitter doom.

Thou, whose side was pierced and flowed
Both with water and with blood;
Suffer us to taste of thee,
In our life's last agony.

O kind, O loving one!
O sweet Jesus, Mary's Son!



Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

* I, (name), a faithless sinner, renew and ratify today
in Thy hands, O Immaculate Mother, the vows of my baptism; I
renounce Satan, his pomps and works; and I give myself
entirely to Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Wisdom, to carry my
cross after Him all the days of my life, and to be more
faithful to Him than I have ever been before.

In the presence of all the Heavenly court I choose thee
this day for my Mother and Mistress. I deliver and
consecrate to thee, as Thy slave, my body and soul, my goods,
both interior and exterior, and even the value of all my
good actions, past, present and future; leaving to thee the
entire and full right of disposing of me, and all that belongs
to me, without exception, according to Thy good pleasure,
for the greater glory of God, in time and in eternity. Amen.



Prayer to the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus

Heart of Jesus in the Eucharist,
I adore You.
Sweet Companion of our exile,
I seek You.
Holy God become man,
I beat with Your Heart.

Eucharistic Heart of Jesus,
solitary, abandoned,
humiliated, cursed,
despised, outraged,
ignored by men,
have mercy on us.
Lover of our hearts,
pleading for Your beloved,
patiently waiting for us,
eager to hear our confidences,
desirous of our devotion,
have mercy on us.
Heart of grace,
silent and wishing to speak,
Refuge of the hidden life,
Sharer of the secrets of union with God,
Eucharistic Heart of Jesus,
have mercy on us.

Jesus, Victim, I want to comfort You.
I unite myself with You.
I offer myself in union with You.
I count myself as nothing before You.
I desire to forget myself and think only of You,
to be forgotten and rejected for love of You,
not to be understood, not to be loved, except by You.
I will hold my peace that I may listen to You.
I will forsake myself in order to be lost in You.
Grant that I may quench Your thirst for my salvation,
Your burning thirst for my sanctification,
and that, being purged, I may give You a true and pure love.
I no longer want to deny Your expectations.
Take me. I give myself to You.
I entrust to You all my actions and thoughts -- my mind, that You may enlighten it,
my heart, that You may fill it,
my will, that You may establish it,
my soul and body, that You may feed and sustain them.
Eucharistic Heart of Jesus,
Whose Blood is the life of my soul,
may it no longer be I who live,
but You alone Who lives in me.



Prayer for the Spread of Perpetual Adoration

Heavenly Father, increase our faith in the Real Presence of Your Son Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.
We are obliged to adore Him, to give Him thanks and to make reparation for sins.
We need your peace in our hearts and among nations.
We need conversion from our sins and the mercy of Your forgiveness.
May we obtain this through prayer and our union with the Eucharistic Lord.
Please send down the Holy Spirit upon all peoples to give them the love, courage, strength and willingness to respond to the invitation to Eucharistic Adoration.
We beseech You to spread Perpetual Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament in parishes around the world.
We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord.  Amen

Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament
Help us to spread the glory of Your Son through Perpetual Adoration.

At the Feet of Christ in the Eucharist

O Jesus, Divine Prisoner of Love, when I consider Your love and how You emptied Yourself for me, my senses deaden. You hide Your inconceivable majesty and lower Yourself to miserable me. O king of Glory, though You hide Your beauty, yet the eye of my soul rends the veil. I see the angelic choirs giving You honor without cease, and all the heavenly Powers praising You without cease, and without cease they are saying: Holy, Holy, Holy.

Oh, who will comprehend Your love and Your unfathomable mercy toward us! O Prisoner of Love, I love up my poor heart in this tabernacle that it may adore You without cease night and day. I know of no obstacle in this adoration: and even though I be physically distant, my heart is always with You. Nothing can put a stop to my love for You. No obstacles exist for me...

O Holy Trinity, One and Indivisible God, may You be blessed for this great gift and testament of mercy. Amen.

I adore You, Lord and Creator, hidden in the Most Blessed Sacrament. I adore You for all the works of Your hands, that reveal to me so much wisdom, goodness and mercy, O Lord. You have spread so much beauty over the earth and it tells me about Your beauty, even though these beautiful things are but a faint reflection of You, incomprehensible Beauty. And although You have hidden Yourself and concealed your beauty, my eye, enlightened by faith, reaches You and my souls recognizes its Creator, its Highest Good, and my heart is completely immersed in prayer of adoration.

My Lord and Creator, Your goodness encourages me to converse with You. Your mercy abolishes the chasm which separates the Creator from the creature. To converse with You, O Lord, is the delight of my heart. In You I find everything that my heart could desire. Here Your light illumines my mind, enabling it to know You more and more deeply. Here streams of grace flow down upon my heart. Here my soul draws eternal life. O my Lord and Creator, You alone, beyond all these gifts, give Your own self to me and unite Yourself intimately with Your miserable creature.

O Christ, let my greatest delight be to see You loved and Your praise and glory proclaimed, especially the honor of Your mercy. O Christ, let me glorify Your goodness and mercy to the last moment of my life, with every drop of my blood and every beat of my heart. Would that I be transformed into a hymn of adoration of You. When I find myself on my deathbed, may the last beat of my heart be a loving hymn glorifying Your unfathomable mercy. Amen.

(by St. Faustina)




Lauda Sion

By St. Thomas Aquinas


Laud, O Sion, thy Salvation
Laud in songs of exultation
this thy Shepherd and thy King:
All thy might in triumph raising
Praise Him Who surpasses praising
Far beyond thine honouring.

Be our theme of high thanksgiving
Living Bread and source of living
Set to-day before us here:-
Broken at that Supper blessed,
As by every mouth confessed,
For the brethren gathered there.

Laud be lifted, sweet and sounding,
Ringing from an heart abounding,
Rising into jubilee!
Laud in duteous celebration
Of this Table's consecration
For such high solemnity.

Lo, the King His Law revises;
Newer truth from elder rises,
Newer Law and Paschal rite.
Ancient truths their room surrender,
Glows the twilight into splendour,
Darkness vanishes to light.

That He wrought at supper lying
In remembrance of His dying
Christ hath bid His Church renew;
We the ordinance obeying,
Earthly bread and wine displaying,
Consecrate the Victim due.

Now the sacred truth receiving
We,- the Bread His Flesh believing
and the Wine His Blood to be,
What tho' eye and mind be failing,
Nature's order countervailing -
Grasp by faith the mystery.

Under diverse kinds concealed
While to sense yet unrevealed
Lies a wonder all-divine.
Flesh and Blood hath each its token
Yet abides there Christ unbroken
Hidden under either sign.

Perfect to the priest who breaks It,
Perfect in the hand who takes It,
Christ is undivided there.
One or thousands may receive Him
Yet true hearts in truth believe Him
Unconsumed everywhere.

Good and bad alike partaking
Each, by diverse lot, is making
One to woe and one to weal,
Each from each is set asunder:
Mark the word of grace and wonder -
One to hurt and one to heal.

Thus the Lord His Presence hiding
Dwells in many parts abiding, -
Every soul in Him confiding
Doubts not that the Whole is there.
He the One remaineth ever
Under every part: for never
Aught can Christ from Christ dissever,
still abiding everywhere.

The Bread of Angels, lo! is sent
For weary pilgrims' nourishment;
The children's Bread, not to be spent
On worthless dogs profane;
In types significant portrayed,
Young Isaac on the altar laid,
And paschal offerings duly made,
And manna's fruitful rain.

O Thou good Shepherd, Very Bread,
Jesu, on us Thy mercy shed;
Sweetly feed us,
Gently lead us,
Till of Thy Fullness us Thou give
Safe in the Land of those that live.
Thou who can'st all, and all dost know
Thou who dost feed us here below,
Grant us here to share
Thy banquet there,
Co-heirs and partners of Thy love
With the blest citizens above.

AMEN.

 



PRAYER

"Do grant, oh my God,
that when my lips approach Yours to kiss You,
I may taste the gall that was given to You;
when my shoulders lean against Yours,
make me feel Your scourging;
when my flesh is united with Yours, in the Holy Eucharist,
make me feel Your passion;
when my head comes near Yours,
make me feel Your thorns;
when my heart is close to Yours,
make me feel Your spear."

-St. Gemma Galgani





PRAYER

Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament

O Virgin Mary, Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament, the glory of Christians, the joy of the universal Church, and the hope of the world, pray for us. Kindle in all the faithful a lively devotion to the most Holy Eucharist, so that they may all be made worthy to receive Holy Communion every day.

V. Pray for us, O Virgin Immaculate, our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament.
R. That the Eucharistic Kingdom of Jesus Christ may come among us!





PRAYER

Totus tuos
Totally yours,
Immaculate Conception, Mary my Mother,
Live in me,
Act in me,
Speak in me and through me,
Think your thoughts in my mind,
Love through my heart,
Give me your dispositions and feelings,
Teach, lead me and guide me to Jesus,
Correct, enlighten and expand my thoughts and behavior,
Posses my soul,
Take over my entire personality and life, replace it with Yourself,
Incline me to constant adoration,
Pray in me and through me,
Let me live in you and keep me in this union always.

- The Holy Father

 



Hail full of grace!

Hail full of grace!
With every virtue was the Virgin adorned who as a lamp carried the unquenchable Light more splendid than the sun.
Hail, full of grace, golden urn containing the heavenly Manna!
Hail, full of grace, quenching the thirst of men with the fresh water of the eternal fountain!
Hail, full of grace, spiritual ocean in whom was found the heavenly pearl, even Christ!
Hail, full of grace, glorious heaven containing the God whom the heavens cannot contain!
Hail, full of grace, excelling the cherubic throne of godly splendor!
Hail, full of grace, pillar of light containing God who leads His people through the desert!

You are blessed, O holy Virgin Mary, and most worthy of all praise, since from you has risen the Sun of justice, Christ our God.

V. In your glory and your splendor.
R. Go forth, advance with victory and reign.


NOVENA OF DIVINE MERCY

Begins on Good Friday

Imprimatur: John A. Marshall, Bishop of Springfield, Mass.

FIRST DAY
Today bring to Me
ALL MANKIND, ESPECIALLY ALL SINNERS

Most Merciful Jesus, whose very nature it is to have compassion on us and to forgive us, do not look upon our sins but upon our trust which we place in Your infinite goodness. Receive us all into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart, and never let us escape from It. We beg this of You by Your love which unites You to the Father and the Holy Spirit.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon all mankind and especially upon poor sinners, all enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. For the sake of His sorrowful Passion show us Your mercy, that we may praise the omnipotence of Your mercy forever and ever. Amen.

 

SECOND DAY
Today bring to Me
THE SOULS OF PRIESTS AND RELIGIOUS

Most Merciful Jesus, from whom comes all that is good, increase Your grace in men and women consecrated to Your service, that they may perform worthy works of mercy; and that all who see them may glorify the Father of Mercy who is in heaven.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the company of chosen ones in Your vineyard -- upon the souls of priests and religious; and endow them with the strength of Your blessing. For the love of the Heart of Your Son in which they are enfolded, impart to them Your power and light, that they may be able to guide others in the way of salvation and with one voice sing praise to Your boundless mercy for ages without end. Amen.

 

THIRD DAY
Today bring to Me
ALL DEVOUT AND FAITHFUL SOULS

Most Merciful Jesus, from the treasury of Your mercy You impart Your graces in great abundance to each and all. Receive us into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart and never let us escape from it. We beg this grace of You by that most wondrous love for the Heavenly Father with which Your Heart burns so fiercely.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon faithful souls, as upon the inheritance of Your Son. For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, grant them Your blessing and surround them with Your constant protection. Thus may they never fail in love or lose the treasure of the holy faith, but rather, with all the hosts of Angels and Saints, may they glorify Your boundless mercy for endless ages. Amen.

 

FOURTH DAY
Today bring to Me
THOSE WHO DO NOT BELIEVE IN GOD
AND THOSE WHO DO NOT YET KNOW ME

Most compassionate Jesus, You are the Light of the whole world. Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who do not believe in God and of those who as yet do not know You. Let the rays of Your grace enlighten them that they, too, together with us, may extol Your wonderful mercy; and do not let them escape from the abode which is Your Most Compassionate Heart.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls of those who do not yet believe in You, and of those who as yet do not know You, but who are enclosed in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. Draw them to the light of the Gospel. These souls do not know what great happiness it it to love You. Grant that they, too, may extol the generosity of Your mercy for endless ages. Amen.

 

FIFTH DAY
Today bring to Me
THE SOULS OF THOSE WHO HAVE
SEPARATED THEMSELVES
FROM MY CHURCH

Most Merciful Jesus, Goodness Itself, You do not refuse light to those who seek it of You. Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who have separated themselves from Your Church. Draw them by Your light into the unity of the Church, and do not let them escape from the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart; but bring it about that they, too, come to glorify the generosity of Your mercy.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls of those who have separated themselves from Your Son’s Church, who have squandered Your blessings and misused Your graces by obstinately persisting in their errors. Do not look upon their errors, but upon the love of Your own Son and upon His bitter Passion, which He underwent for their sake, since they, too, are enclosed in His Most Compassionate Heart. Bring it about that they also may glorify Your great mercy for endless ages. Amen.

 

SIXTH DAY
Today bring to Me
THE MEEK AND HUMBLE SOULS AND
THE SOULS OF LITTLE CHILDREN

Most Merciful Jesus, You yourself have said, "Learn from Me for I am meek and humble of heart." Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart all meek and humble souls and the souls of little children. These souls send all heaven into ecstasy and they are the heavenly Father’s favorites. They are a sweet-smelling bouquet before the throne of God; God Himself takes delight in their fragrance. These souls have a permanent abode in Your Most Compassionate Heart, O Jesus, and they unceasingly sing out a hymn of love and mercy.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon meek souls, upon humble souls, and upon little children who are enfolded in the abode which is the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. These souls bear the closest resemblance of Your Son. Their fragrance rises from the earth and reaches Your very throne. Father of mercy and of all goodness, I beg You by the love You bear these souls and by the delight You are in them: Bless the whole world, that all souls together may sing out the praises of Your mercy for endless ages. Amen.

 

SEVENTH DAY
Today bring to Me
THE SOULS WHO ESPECIALLY VENERATE
AND GLORIFY MY MERCY

Most Merciful Jesus, whose Heart is Love Itself, receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who particularly extol and venerate the greatness of Your mercy. These souls are mighty with the very power of God Himself. In the midst of all afflictions and adversities they go forward, confident of Your mercy; and united to You, O Jesus, they carry all mankind on their shoulders. These souls will not be judged severely, but Your mercy will embrace them as they depart from this life.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls who glorify and venerate Your greatest attribute, that of Your fathomless mercy, and who are enclosed in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. These souls are a living Gospel; their hands are full of deeds of mercy, and their hearts, overflowing with joy, sing a canticle of mercy to You, O Most High! I beg You O God: Show them Your mercy according to the hope and trust they have placed in You. Let there be accomplished in them the promise of Jesus, who said to them that during their life, but especially at the hour of death, the souls who will venerate this fathomless mercy of His, He, Himself, will defend as His glory. Amen.

 

EIGHTH DAY
Today bring to Me
THE SOULS WHO ARE DETAINED
IN PURGATORY

Most Merciful Jesus, You Yourself have said that You desire mercy; so I bring into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls in Purgatory, souls who are very dear to You, and yet, who must make retribution to Your justice. May the streams of Blood and Water which gushed forth from Your Heart put out the flames of Purgatory, that there, too, the power of Your mercy may be celebrated.

Eternal Father, turn our merciful gaze upon the souls suffering in Purgatory, who are enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. I beg You, by the sorrowful Passion of Jesus Your Son, and by all the bitterness with which His most sacred Soul was flooded: Manifest Your mercy to the souls who are under Your just scrutiny. Look upon them in no other way but only through the Wounds of Jesus, Your dearly beloved Son; for we firmly believe that there is no limit to Your goodness and compassion. Amen.

 

NINTH DAY
Today bring to Me
SOULS WHO HAVE BECOME LUKEWARM

Most compassionate Jesus, You are Compassion Itself. I bring lukewarm souls into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart. In this fire of Your pure love let these tepid souls, who, like corpses, filled You with such deep loathing, be once again set aflame. O Most Compassionate Jesus, exercise the omnipotence of Your mercy and draw them into the very ardor of Your love, and bestow upon them the gift of holy love, for nothing is beyond Your power.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon lukewarm souls who are nonetheless enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. Father of Mercy, I beg You by the bitter Passion of Your Son and by His three-hour agony on the Cross: Let them, too, glorify the abyss of Your mercy. Amen.


Following is a Holy Spirit Novena in preparation for Pentecost.
Let us pray: COME HOLY SPIRIT!!!

HOLY SPIRIT NOVENA

After Jesus' Ascension the Apostles were directed by the Angel to gather in the Upper Room WITH MARY, Mother of the Church and Help of Christians, and make a Novena, nine full days of common, ardent, INCESSANT PRAYERS storming Heaven to send the Holy Spirit. It is only by a NEW PENTECOST that today's Church will obtain the saintly Shepherds it needs for the salvation of souls.

Once again we regroup around our Blessed Mother, with our Holy Father the Pope, the successors of the Apostles, the Bishops, Priests and Faithful and obtain from the HOLY SPIRIT a new fire to RENEW THE FACE OF THE EARTH.

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Your faithful and kindle in them the fire of Your Love. Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created - And You shall renew the face of the earth!

Let us pray: O God, you taught the hearts of Your faithful by sending them the light of Your Holy Spirit. Grant us by the same Spirit to have right judgment in all things, and ever rejoice in His consolation, through Christ Our Lord.

Amen.


DAY ONE - The gift of POWER/ZEAL

"You will receive power when the Spirit comes down on you; then you will be witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, yes even to the ends of the earth." - Acts 1,8

Mary's prayer - She who conceived "by the power of the Holy Spirit" now intercedes for the Pope, Bishops and Priests that they may stil the power received in Holy Orders and translate it into ZEAL.

Mary's example - In Conceiving the Savior, She was the first to accept the gift, first also to give Him to others. "The gift you have received give as a gift." GOD'S GIFT to the world IS JESUS.

Conclusion: Jesus asks that He might relive HIS human life once again in US. ("Loan Me your eyes, ears, tongue; feet, hands, heart; your time and health.")

 DAY TWO - The gift of PRAYER

"The Spirit too helps us in our weakness, for we do not know how to pray as we ought; but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be expressed in speech. He Who searches hearts, knows what the Spirit means, for the Spirit intercedes for the saints as God Himself wills." - Rm 8, 26-28

Mary's prayer - At Ain Karim along the garden walls there are 56 texts of the MAGNIFICAT in modern languages. It was here, visiting Elizabeth, that Mary broke out into her song: "My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior. The Almighty has done great things for me and Holy is His Name." Lk 1, 46-55

Mary's example - "Standing by the cross of Jesus were his mother (Mary), her sister, Mary of Clopas, Mary of Magdala, and (John) whom He loved." - Jn. 19, 25-6

Jesus was praying on the cross; Mary was praying by that cross together with the holy women and John. Jesus' heart was lanced; Mary's was pierced through. That's how the world was/is saved: by the Agony of suffering and the Ecstasy of prayer.

Conclusion - "Pray at every opportunity in the Spirit. Watch. Persevere." - Eph 6:19

DAY THREE - Gift of CONVERSION

Peter said: "Know for certain that God has made Him both Lord and Messiah, this Jesus whom you have crucified. "They were cut to the heart and asked Peter...What are we to do, brothers?" He replied: REPENT and be BAPTIZED in the name of Jesus for the forgiveness of sins; you will receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit." - Acts 3, 36

Mary's prayer - echoed in her heart the prayer of Jesus from the cross: "Father forgive them for they know not what they do" and she also forgave.

Mary's example - Sin crucifies Jesus all over again and sin pierces Mary's heart as well. Every pain of His becomes her pain.

Conclusion: Regular, frequent, fervent Confession is the key to conversion.

DAY FOUR - Gift of DAILY MASS

"That we might live no longer for ourselves but for Him, He sent the Holy Spirit from You, Father, as His first gift to those who believe, to complete His work on earth and bring them the fullness of grace. Father, may this Holy Spirit sanctify these offerings. Let them become the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ." (Mass Canon IV)

The power of the Holy Spirit makes Jesus present in Mary and at the altar. John offered Mass in their home and Mary adored Jesus in the Eucharist daily and received Him in communion as we do. She also attended the Liturgy when the other Apostles gathered for it. "They devoted themselves to the teaching of the Apostles, to the communal life, the breaking of the bread and to prayers." - Acts 2, 42 The Spirit Who led Mary to the Altar will also lead us to daily Mass. He will show us the importance of offering to God as clean oblation, from the "rising of the sun to its setting - Mal 1:10-1

Conclusion - Too busy? Ask the Spirit to find a slot in your busy schedule or show you how to attend Mass at least spiritually. Daily Mass is your God - given right and privilege. Mary, the Angels and the Saints will be there ahead of you. The whole world will benefit from your Mass.

DAY FIVE - Gift of PURIFICATION

"In the midst of conflict and division, we know it is you who turn our minds to thoughts of peace Your Spirit changes our hearts: enemies begin to speak to one another, those who were estranged join hands in friendship, and nations seek the way of peace together. Your Spirit is at work when understanding puts and end to strife, hatred is quenched by mercy, and vengeance gives way to forgiveness. Fill us with your Spirit, through our sharing in this meal. May He take away all that divides us." Mass of Reconciliation II "You have gathered us here around the table of your Son, in fellowship with the Virgin Mary, Mother of God, and all the saints. In that new world where the fullness of your peace will be revealed, gather people of every race, language and way of life to share in the one eternal banquet with Jesus Christ the Lord."

Conclusion: Jesus at Mass "scans the globe" around the clock, inch by inch and "takes away the sins of the world," from north to south, from east to west and purifies the souls continually. Jesus is at work. - John 5, 17 Jesus at Mass, in sorrow, in confession purifies our soul. There is no other Name - no other Way. -Acts 4, 12.

DAY SIX - Gift of ADORATION

By His gift of Love, the Holy Spirit gives us the foretaste of heaven. From earth we can rise and join the Cherubim and Seraphim in their eternal song: "Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God almighty, who was and who is and who is to come." Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, everything in the universe cry out: honor, glory and blessing! Amen." - Rev. 4,5

Mary's vocation - "to bear a son, called Immanuel." - Is 7,14 Mary was the most perfect adorer of this infinitely great God-with-us, God-one-of-us, God- for-us while He lived on earth. From heaven She, the head of all perfect adorers, NOW recruits New Adorers among her children.

The Communion of Saints empowers us to love of God with an infinite love worthy of God. It's a marvel that we can muster all this love as our own to Lovingly adore:

- the Father with His own creative love, the Son with His own redeeming love, and the Spirit with His own sanctifying love.

- Each of the Three Divine Persons:
*with their mutual love,
*with Mary's unparalleled love,
*with the love of Angels/Saints in heaven.
*with the love of the Souls in Purgatory,
*with the love of the Saints on earth,
*with our own love, imperfect but real.

Conclusion: For True Adorers in the Holy Spirit, heaven begins right here and now.

DAY SEVEN - Gift of the FATHER

Philip said to him: "Master, show us the Father, and that will be enough for us." Jesus said to him, "You still do not know Me, Philip? Whoever has seen Me has seen the Father also. If you love me keep my commandments. I will ask the Father and He will give you another ADVOCATE the SPIRIT OF TRUTH, which the world cannot accept. Whoever loves Me, will keep My word and My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make Our dwelling with him. The Advocate, the HOLY SPIRIT that the Father will send in my name - He will teach you everything and remined you of all that I told you." - John 14

Jesus' Great Prayer to the Father!
"Father, the hour has come. Give gory to your Son so that your Son may glorify You, just as You gave Him authority over all people, so that He may give eternal life. Now this is eternal life that they may know You, the only true God and the one whom You sent, Jesus Christ. I revealed Your name to those whom you gave Me out of this world. They belonged to You and You gave them to Me, and they kept Your word...I pray not only for them but also for those who will believe in Me through their word, so that all may be one, as You, Father are in me and I in You...Father, they are Your gift to Me. I wish that where I am they also may be with Me, that they may see My glory that You gave Me."

Conclusion: "Those led by the Spirit of God are children of God...who received a spirit of adoption through which we cry ABBA, Father. The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit, that we are children of God." - Rom. 8, 14-7

DAY EIGHT - Gift of the SON

The Angel said to Mary, "You have found favor with God. Behold you will conceive in your womb and bear a Son, and you shall name Him Jesus...The Holy Spirit of the will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. The child will be called the Son of God." - Lk. 1, 30 twice the Father presents Him to the world: "This is My beloved Son, hear Him." - Luke 9:35

Preeminence of Christ Col. 1, 15
"He is the image of the invisible God the first born of all creation. For in Him were created all things in Heaven and on earth, visible and invisible. All things were created through Him and for Him. He is before all things and in Him all things hold together. He is the head of the body, the church; He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He Himself might be preeminent. For in Him all the fullness was pleased to dwell, and through Him to reconcile all things for Him, making peace by the blood of His cross."

Humility of Christ Phil. 2, 5-11
Jesus "did not regard equality with God something to be grasped. Rather He emptied Himself, taking the form of a slave, becoming obedient to death."

Conclusion: "Because of this, God greatly exalted Him and bestowed on Him he Name, that is above every Name, that at the Name of Jesus, every knee should bend, of those in heaven, on earth, under the earth, and every tongue confess that JESUS CHRIST IS LORD."

DAY NINE - Gift of the SPIRIT

"The spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him (Jesus)" the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and strength, the spirit of knowledge and of fear of the Lord." - Isaiah 11, 2

Descent of the Holy Spirit
The eleven Apostles and all those "who had devoted themselves with one accord to prayer, were together with some women and MARY, the mother of Jesus, and His brothers... When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled, they were all in one place together. And suddenly there came from the sky a noise like a strong wind and it filled the entire house. Then there appeared to them tongues of fire which came on each of them. And they were filled with the Holy Spirit." Acts 1 & 2

Conclusion: The Holy Spirit will RENEW THE FACE OF THE EARTH by making US instruments of His Peace, capable of changing hatred into love; injury into pardon; doubt into faith; despair into hope; darkness into light; sadness into joy. Turn the world right-side-up. (St. Francis)
