To the Blessed Sacrament..

I adore Thee profoundly, my Jesus, true Bread of life eternal; and by this my act of adoration I would make Thee compensation for all the wounds with which Thy Sacred Heart bleeds daily to see the profanation of those churches wherein Thou dost vouchsafe to abide beneath the sacramental species, to receive the love and adoration of Thy people. I offer Thee, in reparation for all those irreverences, that most Precious Blood which Thou didst shed from the wound in Thy Left Hand, and, entering therein, I say every moment:
Blessed and praised every moment
Be the most holy and divine Sacrament
Pater noster. Ave Maria. Gloria Patri.

This prayer can be found in the Raccolta.
