Catholic Prayer at Mass: at the Elevation of the Host
Prayer at the Elevation of the Host: Catholic Mass Prayer
Most adorable Body,
I adore Thee, with all the powers of my soul.
Lord, who hast given Thyself entire to us,
grant we may become entirely Thine.
I believe; O Lord, help my unbelief.
Most merciful Savior, be Thou my protector;
strengthen and defend me by Thy heavenly grace, now,
and especially at the hour of my death, sweet Jesus.
The Prayer at the Elevation of the Host is a prayer you can pray when the priest elevates the consecrated host-the Body of Christ-during the Mass. The prayer is a beautiful reminder to keep our eyes and hearts on Christ. May we give ourselves completely to Christ, as He has given Himself completely to us for our salvation. May He protect and defend us now and at the hour of our death.
The Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus: How to Practice the Sacred Heart Devotion by Rev. John Croiset shares the message Jesus gave to St. Margaret Mary about His Sacred Heart. Fr. Croiset was the spiritual director for St. Margaret Mary for 43 years. The book also contains St. Margaret Mary’s prayers to the Sacred Heart and the Sacred Heart Promises.
