MONTH OF THE MOST BLESSED SACRAMENT

       Meditations by St. Alphonsus Liguori

Let my Beloved come into His garden, and eat the fruit of His apple-trees. — Cant. v. 1.

Cornelius a Lapide says that this is precisely the invitation which a soul wishing to receive the holy Communion makes to Jesus in the blessed Sacrament. “Come, my Beloved,” she says, ” come into my poor heart, which at one unhappy period was not Thine, but has now, through Thy grace, returned to Thee; come and eat the fruit of Thy apple-trees; come and taste in me the virtues which Thou Thyself dost bring by Thy coming. My beloved Lord, for the honour at least of Thy own Majesty purify my soul, adorn it, inflame it with Thy love, and make it fair in Thine Eyes, so that it may become a fit abode for Thee.

                      Spiritual Communion

I adore Thee, my beloved Jesus, truly present in the most holy Sacrament of the Altar. I adore Thee, and long for Thy sacred Presence in my heart. I cannot now receive Thee sacramentally, come to me, therefore, dear Lord, in spirit, come and remove from my heart whatsoever in the least displeases Thee, I hate and renounce it all, and beseech Thee to give me instead the virtues I so much need, especially Come and teach me above all to die to all self-love, that Thy love may be the motive of all I do, or think, or say. I thank Thee for all Thy blessings, and unite myself to Thy Will in all things: teach me to love Thee!

Prayer to the Ever-Blessed Mother of God

                 For every Day of the Week

Pope Pius VII, granted 300 days’ indulgence to all the faithful who, with at least contrition of heart, should repeat these prayers each day of the week, with three Ave Marias after each, in atonement for the blasphemies uttered against the blessed Virgin. This Indulgence is applicable to the souls in Purgatory.

                   Prayer to Our Lady 

                    To Obtain Heaven

O Queen of Heaven, who art seated nearest to God, and above all the choirs of Angels, I, a wretched sinner, salute thee from this vale of tears, and beseech thee to turn towards me thy compassion ate eyes, which beam graces whithersoever they are directed. Behold, O Mary, what danger I am now in, and shall be in while I live, of losing my soul, and Heaven, and God Himself: in thee, most holy Lady, I rest all my hopes; I love thee, and long to see thee and praise thee in Paradise. O Mary, when will the happy day come when I shall see myself saved, and at thy feet, and shall gaze on the Mother of my Lord, my Mother also, who has done so much for my salvation? When shall I kiss that hand which has so often rescued me from Hell, and has given me so many favours, when, by my sins, I had deserved to be hated and abandoned by all! I have been very ungrateful to thee in this life, but if I attain Heaven I shall no more be so; there I shall love thee with all my strength, and in every moment of Eternity, and shall atone for my negligence, by praising and thanking thee unceasingly. I most earnestly thank God, Who has given me such confidence in the Blood of Jesus Christ, and in thee, to whom I look to be saved from sin, to obtain light and strength to fulfil the Divine Will, and finally to be led to the gates of Heaven. All this thy servants have hoped, and none have ever been deceived, neither shall I be. O Mary, it is for thee to save me: pray with me to thy beloved Son, through the infinite Merits of His Passion, that He will preserve in me, and continually increase this confidence, and thus I shall be saved. Amen.
