Love and Praise for the Most Blessed Sacrament

"The Sacrament of the Body of the Lord puts the demons to flight,
defends us against the incentives to vice and to concupiscence,
cleanses the soul from sin,
quiets the anger of God,
enlightens the understanding to know God,
inflames the will and the affections with the love of God,
fills the memory with spiritual sweetness,
confirms the entire man in good,
frees us from eternal death,
multiplies the merits of a good life,
leads us to our everlasting home,
and re-animates the body to eternal life."

~ Saint Thomas Aquinas ~

Mary, Mother of Jesus Christ, Eternal High priest, Mother of all priests and our Mother, help us respond generously to the Holy Spirit's request, through the voice of his Church, to offer up to God Eucharistic adoration for priests. Amen.
