Thursday of Adoration and Reparation for Priests

| | Comments (0)


Why art Thou left alone in this Most Holy Sacrament? Where are Thy adorers and Thy friends? Has Thy Church failed to announce Thy Gospel to the world, and to make Thy presence known? Why art Thou so ignored, forsaken, and left alone in Thy tabernacles, without honour and with no one to thank Thee for the gift of Thy real presence? Why is the world kept in the dark concerning Thee in this Most Holy Sacrament, when Thou art all that this world needs, and all that souls desire?

Lord Jesus Christ,
I adore Thee who art truly present here,
with all the love of my heart.
Thou who art here for me so that I may be here for Thee,
give Thou Thyself to me
so that I may give myself to Thee.

Let nothing separate me from Thee,
and let all things work together
to bring me to Thee in faith, in hope, in love,
and in adoration.

Let me believe in Thee for those who do not believe in Thee;
hope in Thee for those who do not hope in Thee;
love Thee for those who do not love Thee;
and adore Thee for those who do not adore Thee,
especially for those of Thy priests who find themselves far from Thee,
in darkness and in the shadow of death.

Go Thou in search of them, O Jesus,
and send Thy Holy Angels out to find them wherever they may be;
and bring them back to Thee
who awaitest their return to Thy altars
and to Thy Heart
in this Most Holy Sacrament. Amen.
