Morning Salutation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

A Morning Offering to the Sacred Heart of JesusO sweetest Jesus, Divine Friend, Thou hast been watching and waiting patiently and lovingly in Thy lonely tabernacle all through the night for this moment, which finds me once more at Thy Blessed Feet, that I may be consoled and strengthened by Thy presence. I have come, dear Lord, to adore Thee in the Sacrament of Thy love, with a heart full of thanks to Thee for abiding with us ‘all days’. I thank Thee, in particular, for having protected and preserved me during the past night, and for having given me another day to labour for Thy greater honour and glory, for the good of my neighbour, and for my own sanctification and salvation. In reparation for all the sufferings Thy Sacred Heart endures in the Blessed Sacrament, I offer Thee the adoration and praise of all the just on earth, of all the Angels and Saints in Heaven, and especially of Thy Blessed Mother. I offer Thee my heart, my soul, my body, and all that I have. My whole being shall be consecrated to Thy service. Deign to make me obedient, modest, humble, patient, kind, and magnanimous in my conduct toward others; draw me to Thee in ever closer union with Thy loving, Sacred Heart; make me resigned to Thy Holy Will, and grant that I may be found worthy one day of that reward which Thou hast promised to those who love and serve Thee faithfully on earth. Give me Thy grace, that I may become a Saint. O stay with me, dearest Jesus, my good Lord and Master, till the evening of my life. Pardon me all my sins; I am very sorry that I have offended Thee, because Thou art infinitely good; I love Thee truly with my whole heart; let me not be separated from Thee, and when death comes, say to me: ‘Enter thou into the joy of thy Lord’. Amen.

O Sacrament most holy! O Sacrament divine!
All praise and all thanksgiving be every moment Thine.
