Humbly beg Gods Grace


O my God, Thou knowest my great poverty and misery, and that of myself I can do nothing:

Thou knowest how unworthy I am of this infinite favour, and Thou alone canst make me worthy.

Since Thou art so good as to invite me thus to Thyself, add this one bounty more to all the rest—to prepare me for Thyself.

Never let me be guilty of Thy Body and Blood by an unworthy communion.

For the sake of this same precious Blood, which Thou hast shed for me, deliver me, O Jesus, from so great an evil.
