To Jesus, truly present in the Blessed Sacrament;
to Mary, Mother of the Church, who was His first adorer;
to those visitors who come to this chapel:
to increase their awareness of the Real Presence of
Christ in the Blessed Sacrament;
to draw closer to Him through this awareness;
to profess it through prayer, praise and adoration;
to bring greater honor and glory to God through the acknowledgement of their belief in the Real Presence.
Peace of Christ be with you.
With this prayer, we petition God's Mother, Mary, to pray and intercede for us before the Throne of God:
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that
anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your
intercession, was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly
unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you I come, before you I
stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not
my petitions, but in your mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
Suggested Prayer #2:

|O Sacred Heart of Jesus, for whom it is impossible not to have compassion on the afflicted, have pity on us miserable sinners and grant us the
grace which we ask of you, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, your tender Mother and ours.
Say the Hail, Holy Queen and add: St. Joseph, foster father of Jesus, pray for us.

Our Lord told St. Gertrude the following prayer would release 1,000 souls from Purgatory each time it is said.
"Eternal Father, I offer thee the most precious blood of thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the
Holy Souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen".
Suggested Prayer #4:
O Lord Jesus Christ, I adore Thee present here in the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar and in my heart by grace. I unite myself to Thee in the praise which Thou art ever rendering to Thy Father. I ask Thee, dear Lord, to glorify Thy Blessed Mother and the Saints especially _______ my patron and those of my Community.
I unite myself to Thee as Head of the Church and Supreme High Priest to plead the cause of the whole Church.
I call to mind all that this earth holds of misery and pain the sick, the dying, the tempted, the despairing, all poor sinners and the afflicted. I take into my heart all the sorrows, the anguish and hopes of each soul.
I ask a blessing upon all works of zeal undertaken for the glory of God and the salvation of souls. I pray for the souls in Purgatory. Lastly I make my own the intentions of all those who have recommended themselves to my prayers, of all those for whom I have especially been asked to pray, of those I love and of those united to me by ties of family and kinship.
I am all Thine, my most loving Jesus and all that I have I offer to Thee through Mary, Thy Holy Mother.
_______ Dom Marmion, O.S.B.
