"Make Reparation for the ingratitude of men. Spend an hour in prayer to appease divine justice, to implore mercy for sinners, to honor Me, to console Me for My bitter suffering when abandoned by My Apostles, when they did not WATCH ONE HOUR WITH ME."
~ Jesus to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque ~

Pane di Vita Nuova: Bread of Life
Pane di vita nuova Vero cibo dato agli uomini,
Nutrimento che sostiene il mondo,
Dono splendido di grazia.
Tu sei sublime frutto Di quell'albero di vita Che adamo non potè toccare:
Ora è in cristo a noi donato.
Pane della vita,
Sangue di salvezza,
vera bevanda Cibo di grazia per il mondo.
Bread of Life, new true food given to men,
nourishment that sustains the world,
splendid gift of grace.
You are sublime fruit of the tree of life that Adam could not touch:
Most Sacred, Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, Eternal Victim, truly present in the tabernacles of the world, to You I consecrate my entire being, body and soul. I place in Your Heart, burning ember of Divine Love, my every burden and petition. Take me and use me according to Your need to bring about the Glorious Reign of Your Eucharistic Heart on earth. Amen.

Spiritual Communion Prayer
My Jesus, I believe that You are truly present in the Blessed Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and I long for You in my soul.
Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.
As though You have already come, I embrace You and unite myself entirely to You; never permit me to be separated from You.
My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You. I beg pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love You.
Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore You profoundly, and I offer You the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference with which He Himself is offended. And, through the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of You the conversion of poor sinners. Amen.
I am a Roman Catholic wife, mother, and grandmother who -YES- has a personal relationship with Jesus Christ! What could be more personal than
receiving His Precious Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity in Holy Communion every day, or spending precious time with Him in daily Eucharistic adoration? Outside of heaven, I can't be closer to Jesus than when He gives Himself to me in Holy Communion or when I bask in His Eucharistic Presence.
