Prayer of St.
Faustina before the Eucharist
|I adore You,
Lord and Creator, hidden in the Most Blessed Sacrament. I adore You for all
the works of Your hands, that reveal to me so much wisdom, goodness and
mercy, O Lord. You have spread so much beauty over the earth and it tells me
about Your beauty, even though these beautiful things are but a faint
reflection of You, incomprehensible Beauty. And although You have hidden
Yourself and concealed Your beauty, my eye, enlightened by faith, reaches
You and my soul recognizes its Creator, its Highest Good, and my heart is
completely immersed in prayer of adoration.
My Lord and Creator, Your goodness encourages me to converse with You. Your
mercy abolishes the chasm which separates the Creator from the creature. To
converse with You, O Lord, is the delight of my heart. In You I find
everything that my heart could desire. Here You light illumines my mind,
enabling it to know You more and more deeply. Here streams of graces flow
down upon my heart. Here my soul draws eternal life. O my Lord and Creator,
You alone, beyond all these gifts, give Your own self to me and unite
Yourself intimately with Your miserable creature.
O Christ, let my greatest delight be to see You loved and Your praise and
glory proclaimed, especially the honor of Your mercy. O Christ, let me
glorify Your goodness and mercy to the last moment of my life, with every
drop of my blood and every beat of my heart. Would that I be transformed
into a hymn of adoration of You. When I find myself on my deathbed, may the
last beat of my heart be a loving hymn glorifying Your unfathomable mercy.
