FIRST DAY: THE TITLE OF OUR LADY OF THE MOST BLESSED SACRAMENT
O Sacrament Most Holy,
O Sacrament Divine,
all praise and all thanksgiving be every moment thine.

Blessed be the holy and Immaculate Conception
of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God!

O Virgin Immaculate,
Mother of Jesus and our tender Mother,
we invoke thee under the title of Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament,
because thou art the Mother of the Savior
who lives in the Eucharist,
and because it was from thee that He took the Flesh and Blood
with which He there feeds us!
We invoke thee under that title because, again,
thou art the sovereign dispensatrix of all graces and,
consequently, of those contained in the august Eucharist,
also, because thou didst first fulfill the duties of the Eucharistic life,
teaching us by thy example
how to assist properly at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass,
how to communicate worthily,
and how to visit frequently and piously the Most Blessed Sacrament.

V. Pray for us, O Virgin Immaculate,
Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament.

R. That the Eucharistic Kingdom of Jesus Christ may come among us!

Let us pray:
Lord Jesus Christ, our King and our God,
who having become Man to make us sharers in The Divinity,
art truly our Bread in the adorable Eucharist,
grant, we beseech Thee,
that in venerating so great a Mystery,
we may be mindful of the most sweet Virgin Mary,
of whom Thou didst will to be conceived
by the operation of the Holy Ghost!
Grant, also that we may imitate the worship
that she rendered while on earth to this most august Sacrament,
so we may behold Thy Eucharistic Kingdom
spread and flourish throughout the whole world!
O Thou who livest and reignest forever and ever! Amen.

PRAYER TO OUR LADY OF THE MOST BLESSED SACRAMENT
Blessed are you, Mary,
exalted Daughter of Sion!
You are highly favored and full of grace,
for the Spirit of God descended upon you.

We magnify the Lord
and rejoice with you
for the gift of the Word made flesh,
our bread of life and cup of joy.

after having been present at the death of thy Divine Son on Calvary,
where thou didst unite thy immense sorrow to the Redeemer’s sacrifice,
thou didst frequently assist at the real,
though mysterious, renewal of that adorable sacrifice
in the celebration of the Holy Mass.
Teach us by thy example to esteem as it deserves
the Divine action performed at the altar,

to assist piously at the Holy Sacrifice.

thy Communions were the most fervent,
the most holy that were ever made!
When thou didst possess thy Divine Son in thy breast,
thou didst love Him with a love exceeding
that of any other creature soever for his God.
Teach us to make Holy Communion the center of our life,
and may that life be spent in preparing us
for so great an action
and in thanking God for so inappreciable a benefit!

who after the ascension of thy Divine Son,
didst console thy exile on earth
by thy Real Presence of Jesus in the Sacrament,
and didst spend before the tabernacle
the greater part of thy days and even thy nights,
make us comprehend the treasure we possess on the altar.
Inspire us to visit often the God of Love in the Sacrament
in which He abides to receive the homage that He deserves by so many titles,
and to guide, protect, and console us in this exile!

the grace to convert the world!
Teach us to pray, above all,
to pray near the tabernacle,
where Jesus wills to abide continually
in order to hear our petitions.
Teach us to pray for the extension of the Eucharistic kingdom,
for the salvation of the whole world,
for the exaltation of the Holy Church,

Grant us, then, we beseech thee,
as the fruit of this novena,
the virtues that will render our adoration
less unworthy of thy Divine Son.
Teach us to honor so well this Mystery of mysteries
that we may receive here below the graces it contains,
in order to enjoy in heaven the eternal life
of which it is the pledge!
