St. John Vianney and the Real Presence

Could there be a better petition than the one offered today?

I often ask myself...if I really and truly believe that Jesus is present - body, blood, soul and divinity - in the tabernacle, then why would I want to be anywhere else? Yet I don't get to adoration often enough. Today, hopefully the Curé's intercession will help me in that department.


O Holy Priest of Ars, whose only comfort in this world was the real presence of Jesus in the tabernacle, was it not your great joy to distribute the Eucharist to the pilgrims who visited you? You refused Communion to the souls who refused to reform but to souls of goodwill you opened wide the doors of the Eucharistic Feast.You, who each day at Holy Mass received Holy Communion with great loves, give me some of your fervor. With freedom from mortal sin, obtain for me a sincere desire to profit from receiving Holy Communion. Holy Priest of Ars, I have confidence in your intercession. Pray for me during this novena especially for... (mention silently your special intentions).
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be.
