Padre Pio’s Prayers

VISIT THE MOST BLESSED SACRAMENT

My Lord Jesus Christ, who, for the love you bear to mankind, do remain night and day in this Sacrament, full of pity and love, awaiting, calling, and receiving all who come to visit you; I believe that you are present in the Sacrament of the Altar; I adore you from the depths of my own nothingness; I thank you for the many graces you have given me, and especially for having given me yourself in this Sacrament; for having given me Mary your Mother as my advocate, and for having called me to visit you in this church. I pay homage this day to Youy most loving Heart and this I intend to do for three intentions: fist, in thanksgiving for this great gift; secondly, in reparation for all the insults You have recieved from Your enemies in this Sacrament; thirdly, by this visit I intend to adore You in all places upon the earth, where You are least adored and most neglected in Your Sacrament.

My Jesus, I love You with my whole heart. I repent of having in the past so many times displeased Yout infinite goodness. I purpuse with the help of Your grace never more to offend You in the future; and this present, wretched as I am. I consecrate myself wholly to You. I giv You, and utterly renounce my entire will, all my affections, all my desires, and all that I possess. From this day for forth do with me and with all that is mine whatever is pleasing in Your sight. I ask and desire only Your holy love, final perseverance and the perfect fulfillment of Your will.

I commend to You the sould in purgatory, especially those who were most devoted to this Blessed of Sarament and to Blessed Mary.

I commend to You in like manner all por sinners. Finally, my dear Saviour, I unite all my affections with those of Your most loving Heart, and thus united I offer them to Your eternal Father, and I pray Him in Your name graciously to accept and answer them for love of You.

SPIRITUAL COMMUNION

My Jesus. I believe that you are truly present in the most blessed sacrament

I love You above all things and I desire to possess You within my soul.

Since I am unable now to receive You sacramentally come at least spiritually into my heart.

I embrace You as being already there, and unite myself wholly to You; never permit me to be separated from You.

VISIT TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY

Most holy Virgin Immaculate, my Mother Mary, it is to you, who are the Mother of my Lord, the Queen of the world, the advocate, the hope and the refuge of sinners, that I have recourse today, I, who most of all am deserving of pity. Most humbly do I offer you my homage, O great Queen, and I thank you for all the graces you have obtained for me until now, and particularly for having saved me from Hell, which, by my sins, I have so often deserved.

I love you, O most lovable Lady, and because of my love for you, I promise to serve you always and to do all in my power to win others to love you also. In your hands I place all my hopes; I entrust the salvation of my soul to your care. Accept me as your servant, O Mother of Mercy; receive me under your mantle. And since you have such power with God, deliver me from all temptations, or rather, obtain for me the strength to triumph over them until death. Of you I ask the grace of perfect love for Jesus Christ. Through your help I hope to die a happy death. O my Mother I beg you, by the love you bear my God, to help me at all times, but especially at the last moment of my life. Do not leave me, I beseech you, until you see me safe in Heaven, blessing you and singing your mercies for all eternity, amen. So I hope, so may it be.
