Special Prayers for Adoration

ANT. O sacred banquet in which Christ is received, the memory of His Passion is recalled, the soul is filled with grace, and the pledge of future glory is given us.

V/. Thou hast given them Bread from heaven,
R/. Containing all manner of sweetness.

Let us pray.
O GOD, Who hast left us, in this wonderful Sacrament, a perpetual memorial of Thy Passion, grant use, we beseech Thee, so to reverence the sacred mysteries of Thy Body and Blood that we may ever find in our souls the fruit of Thy Redemption, Who livest and reignest, forever and ever. Amen.

Ave Verum Corpus Natum

HAIL to Thee! true Body, sprung
From the Virgin Mary’s womb!
The same that on the Cross was hung,
And bore for man the bitter doom!

Thou, Whose side was pierced, and flow’d
Both with Water and with Blood;
Suffer us to taste of Thee,
In our life’s last agony.

Son of Mary, Jesu blest!
Sweetest, gentlest, holiest!

Sing My Tongue | Pange Lingua

SING, my tongue, the Saviour’s glory,
Of His Flesh, the mystery sing;
Of His Blood, all price exceeding,
Shed by our immortal King,
Destin’d for the world’s redemption
From a noble Womb to spring.

Of a pure and spotless Virgin
Born for us on earth below,
He, as Man, with man conversing,
Stay’d the seeds of truth to sow;
Then He closed in solemn order
Wondrously His Life of woe.

On the night of that Last Supper,
Seated with His chosen band,
He, the Paschal Victim eating,
First fulfils the Lord’s command;
Then as Food to all His brethren,
Gives Himself with His own Hand.

Word-made-Flesh, the bread of nature
By His Word to Flesh He turns;
Wine into His Blood He changes:
What though sense no change discerns!
Only be the heart in earnest,
Faith her lesson quickly learns.

Down in adoration falling,
Lo! the sacred Host we hail!
Lo! o’er ancient forms departing,
Newer rites of grace prevail;
Faith for all defects supplying,
When the feebler senses fail.

To the Everlasting Father,
And the Son Who reigns on high,
With the Holy Ghost proceeding
Forth from each eternally,
Be salvation, honour, blessing,
Might and endless majesty.

THE Passion of Christ
Sacred Heart of Jesus | FRIDAY PRAYERS

ANT. O all ye who pass by the way, attend and see if there is any sorrow like unto my sorrow.

V/. We adore Thee, O Christ, and we bless Thee.
R/. Because by Thy holy Cross Thou hast redeemed the world.

Let us pray.
O LORD Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, Who at the sixth hour didst mount the gibbet of the Cross for the Redemption of the world and didst shed Thy Precious Blood that our sins might be washed away, we humbly beseech Thee that after our death Thou wouldst suffer us to pass with joy through the gates of heaven. Who livest and reignest world without end. Amen.

O GOD, Who to redeem the world didst vouchsafe to be born amongst men, to be circumcised, rejected by the Jews, betrayed by the traitor Judas with a kiss, to be bound with cords, and as an innocent lamb to be led to the slaughter; Who didst suffer Thyself to be shamelessly exposed to the gaze of Annas, Caiphus, Pilate and Herod; to be accused by false witnesses, tormented by scourges and insults, crowned with thorns, smitten with blows, defiled with spittings, to have Thy divine countenance covered, to be struck with a reed, to be stripped of Thy clothes, nailed to and raised high upon a Cross between two thieves, to be given gall and vinegar to drink, and then pierced with a lance; do Thou, O LORD, by these most sacred sufferings, which I, unworthy as I am, yet dare to contemplate, by Thy holy Cross and by Thy bitter Death, free me from the pains of hell, and vouchsafe to bring me to Paradise, whither Thou didst lead the thief who was crucified with Thee, my Jesus, Who with the Father and the Holy Ghost livest and reignest, God forever and ever. Amen.

5x Pater Noster … Ave Maria … Gloria Patri …
(Pre-1968 Indulgence of 3 years)


Invocation of St. Thomas Aquinas
THE CROSS is my sure salvation;
the Cross I ever adore;
the Cross of my Lord is with me;
the Cross is my refuge.

THE Blessed Virgin Mary
Immaculate Heart Mary | SATURDAY PRAYERS

ANT. O glorious Mother of God, Mary, ever Virgin, who alone wast found worthy to bear the Lord of all, and though a virgin, to nurse the King of angels; be graciously mindful to us, we beseech thee, and pray to Christ for us, that we, being upheld by thy care, may deserve to attain to the heavenly kingdom.

V/. Holy Mary, Mother of Christ.
R/. Hear thy humble servants who implore thee.

Let us pray.
GRANT, we beseech Thee, O Lord God, that we, Thy servants, may enjoy continual health of mind and body; and that through the glorious intercession of blessed Mary, ever Virgin, we may be delivered from present sorrow, and attain eternal happiness. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.


THOU art inviolate, undefiled and chaste, O Mary.
Though hast been made the resplendent gate of heaven.
O loving and dearest Mother of Christ,
Accept our devout acclamations in praise of thee.
That our minds and bodies may be pure,
Devoted hearts and lips now implore thee.
Through thy sweetest sounding prayers,
Gain us pardon forever.
O kind one, who alone didst remain inviolate. 

The Memorare

REMEMBER, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy clemency hear and answer me. Amen.
