Some Christians have the custom of entering a church, sometime during the day, in order to make a visit to Christ present in the Blessed Sacrament. They spend a few moments of intimacy with the Lord, as they recite prayers and express personal petitions. A short time before the Blessed Sacrament will help us to recall the presence of God in our daily routine.
“Jesus has remained in the Sacred Host for us so as to stay by our side, to sustain us, to guide us. And love can be repaid with love only. How could we not turn to the Blessed Sacrament each day, even if it is only for a few minutes, to bring him our greetings and our love as children and as brothers?” (St Josemaria)
Recite three times:
V. Let us for ever adore the most Holy Sacrament.
R. Let us for ever adore the most Holy Sacrament.
Our Father. Hail Mary. Glory Be.
V. Adorémus in æternum Sanctíssimum Sacramentum.
R. Adorémus in æternum Sanctíssimum Sacramentum.
Pater Noster . . . Ave Maria . . . Gloria Patri . . .
I wish, my Lord, to receive you with the purity, humility, and devotion with which your most holy Mother received you, with the spirit and fervour of the saints.
