Prayers for Benediction – Easter 3

Blesséd, Praised, Hallowed and Adored, be Our Lord Jesus Christ on his throne of Glory

and in the most Holy Sacrament of the Altar

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!

Lord Jesus Christ, present before us in this Blessed Sacrament,

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 place are invited…

May all those of us 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

Blessed Pope John Paul II

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 honour without cease, and all the heavenly Powers praising You without cease, and without cease they are saying: Holy, Holy, Holy Lord, God of power and might, heaven and earth are full of your glory, hosanna in the highest.

St. Faustina
