Eternal Father we humbly offer Thee our poor presence and that of the whole of humanity
from the beginning to the end of the world at ALL the Masses that ever have or ever
will be prayed. We offer Thee all the pains, sufferings, prayers, sacrifices, joys
and relaxations of our lives, in union with those of our dear Lord Jesus here on earth.
May the Most Precious Blood of Christ, ALL His blood and wounds and agony save us,
through the sorrowful and IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY.
THIS PRAYER SHOULD BE PRAYED DAILY AND MADE KNOWN.
Your prayers are strongest at the Consecration in HOLY MASS (raising of HOST and CHALICE).
Each time we look at The MOST BLESSED SACRAMENT our place in HEAVEN is raised forever.
