ACTS AFTER COMMUNION.




ACTS AFTER COMMUNION.

""What return shall I make the Lord for all He has given me?"

""Praising, I will call upon the Lord, and shall be saved from my enemies."

""Grant, O Lord, that what we have taken with our mouth, we may receive with a pure mind, that of a temporal gift it may become to us an eternal remedy."

"May Thy Body and Blood, O Lord, which I have received, cleave to my soul; and grant that no stain of sin may remain in me, who have been fed with this pure and holy Sacrament. Who livest and reignest world without end. Amen.

"O holy Banquet, in which Christ is received, His passion commemorated, the soul is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given us."

V. Bread from Heaven Thou hast given them.

R. That contains all sweetness and delight

"O God, Who in this wonderful Sacrament has left us a perpetual memorial of Thy passion; grant us, we beseech Thee, to so reverence the sacred mysteries of Thy Body and Blood, that we may continually perceive in our souls the fruit of Thy redemption. Who, with the Father and the Holy Ghost, livest and reignest ever one God, world without end. Amen."

Act of Petition.

O my soul, what art thou doing? The present is no time to be lost: it is a precious time, in which thou canst receive all the graces which thou askest. Seest thou not the eternal Father Who is lovingly beholding thee? For within thee He sees His beloved Son, the dearest object of His love. Drive, then, far from thee all other thoughts; rekindle thy faith, enlarge thy heart, and ask for whatever thou willest.

Hearest thou not Jesus Himself, Who thus addresses thee: What wilt thou that I should do to thee." (St. Mark x. 51.) O soul, tell me, what dost thou desire of me? I am come for the express purpose of enriching and gratifying thee; ask with confidence, and thou wilt receive all.

Ah! My most sweet Saviour, since Thou hast come into my heart in order to grant me graces, and desirest that I should ask Thee for them, I ask Thee not for the goods of the earth—riches, honors, or pleasures; but grant me, I beseech Thee, intense sorrow for the displeasure I have caused Thee. Impart to me so clear a light, that I may know the vanity of this world, and how deserving Thou art of love. Change this heart of mine, detach it from all earthly affections; give me a heart, conformable in all things to Thy holy will, that it may seek only for that which is more pleasing to Thee, and have no other desire than Thy holy love: "Create a clean heart in me, O God." (Ps. 1.12.)

I deserve not this grace; but Thou, my Jesus, deservest it, since Thou art come to dwell in my soul. I ask it of Thee through Thy merits, and those of Thy most holy Mother, and by the love which Thou bearest to Thy Eternal Father

Here pause, to ask Jesus for some other particular grace for yourself, and for your neighbors. Do not forget poor sinners, nor the souls in Purgatory.

Eternal Father, Jesus Christ Himself, Thy Son, has said, "Amen, amen I say unto you, if you ask the Father anything in My name, He will give it you." For the love, then, of this Son, Whom I now hold within my breast, do Thou graciously hear me and grant my petition.

My most sweet Loves, Jesus and Mary, may I suffer for you, may I die for you; may I be all yours and in nothing my own! May the Most Blessed Sacrament ever be thanked and praised!

"Blessed be the holy and Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God!"

*300 days indulgence each time. (No. 324)




"What therefore God has joined together, let no man put asunder."
