A prayer of adoration before the Blessed Sacrament

As troubled as our world is today, it can be easy to forget that the purpose of Christ’s Incarnation, Passion, Death and Resurrection was not that we be mired eternally in sin, death, and damnation, but to nourish us, to heal our wounded natures, and to help us achieve holiness. Even as we struggle, He is immeasurably pleased when, with sincere contrition for our sins and a firm purpose of amending our lives and relinquishing our wills to His, we implore Him and thank Him for His graces. Here is a prayer originally promulgated by Blessed Pope Pius IX in 1866 that is suitable for a Holy Hour or other visit to Our Lord in the Eucharist.

Dear Jesus, present in the Sacrament of the Altar, be for ever thanked and praised. Love, worthy of all celestial and terrestrial love! who, out of infinite love for me, ungrateful sinner, didst assume our human nature, didst shed Thy most precious Blood in the cruel scourging, and didst expire on a shameful cross for our eternal welfare! Now, illumined with lively faith, with the outpouring of my whole soul and the fervour of my heart, I humbly beseech Thee, through the infinite merits of Thy painful sufferings, give me strength and courage to destroy every evil passion which sways my heart, to bless Thee in my greatest afflictions, to glorify Thee by the exact fulfilment of all my duties, supremely to hate all sin, and thus to become a saint.
