Oh Blessed Sacrament, oh Heart of Jesus!

We had a day of prayer at our parish in Rome today. It began with a Solemn High Mass. I would include the music, but I still don’t know how to create a podcast (by the way, any suggestions taken concerning this matter). A priest and I sang the chants for the Mass. Following the Mass, we had a day of Eucharistic adoration including sermons, the Rosary, and other devotions.

In light of this day, I share with you the Litany of the Sacred Heart edited according to the suggestion I made a few weeks ago here to change the evocation of the Heart of Jesus to that of the Blessed Sacrament.

Litany of the Blessed Sacrament for private devotion:

Amen.

Jesus, each time I look at the sacred Host,
sancify my eyes,
that they may close more and more
to all that is merely earthly.

Jesus, each time I look at the sacred Host,
send a ray of divine light into my soul,
that I may better know Thee and myself.

Jesus, each time I look at the sacred Host,
send a flame of divine love into my heart
to consume everything in it
that is displeasing to Thee
and to set it all on fire with Thy love.

Now and in eternity
may my only desire be to contemplate
the infinite beauty of Thy divine countenance
which delights the angels.

Amen.
