The Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist

Prayer for The Eucharistic Revival 

My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You! I beg pardon for those who do not believe, nor adore, nor hope, nor love You.

Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore You profoundly. I offer You the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference by which He is offended.  And, through the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of   Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of You the conversion of sinners.
