As I cannot this day enjoy the happiness of assisting at the holy Mysteries, O my God! I transport myself in spirit at the foot of Your altar; I unite with the Church, which by the hands of the priest, offers You Your adorable Son in the Holy Sacrifice; I offer myself with Him, by Him, and in His Name. I adore, I praise, and thank You, imploring Your mercy, invoking Your assistance, and presenting You the homage I owe You as my Creator, the love due to You as my Savior.
Apply to my soul, I beseech You, O merciful Jesus, Your infinite merits; apply them also to those for whom I particularly wish to pray. I desire to communicate spiritually, that Your Blood may purify, Your Flesh strengthen, and Your Spirit sanctify me. May I never forget that You, my divine Redeemer, has died for me; may I die to all that is not You, that hereafter I may live eternally with You. Amen.
