Prayer While Visiting The
Most Blessed Sacrament
by St. Alphonsus
My Lord Jesus Christ,

recommend to You all poor sinners.
My dear Saviour, I unite all my affections with the affections of Your
most loving Heart; and I offer them, thus united, to Your eternal
Father, and beseech Him in Your name to vouchsafe, for Your love, to
