Prayer To St Ambrose 1
Your creature, whom You have redeemed with Your Blood. I am grieved because I have sinned. I desire to make amends for what I have done. Take away from me, therefore, O most merciful Father, all my iniquities and my sins, that, being purified both in soul and body, I may worthily partake of the Holy of Holies; and grant that this holy oblation of Your Body and Blood, of which though unworthy I purpose to partake, may be to me the remission of my sins, the perfect cleansing of all my offenses, the means of driving away all evil thoughts and of renewing all holy desires, the accomplishment of works pleasing to You, as well as the strongest defense for soul and body against the snares of my enemies.
Prayer To St Ambrose 2
O Lord, Jesus Christ,
King of everlasting glory, behold I desire to come to you this day, and to receive Your Body and Blood in this heavenly Sacrament for Your honor and glory, and the good of my soul. I desire to receive You, because it is your desire, and You have so willed it; blessed be Your Name forever. I desire to come to You like Magdalene, that I may be delivered from all evils, and embrace You, My only Good. I desire to come to You, that I may be happily united to You, that I may henceforth abide in You, and You in me; and that nothing in life or death may ever separate me from You.
Prayer To St Ambrose 3
My good Jesus,
I pray You to bless me; keep me in Your love; grant me the grace of final perseverance. Help me to become a Saint. Safeguarded by You in soul and in body, may I never swerve from the right road, but surely reach Your Kingdom, where, not in dim mysteries, as in the dark world of ours, but face to face we shall look upon You. There will You satisfy me with Yourself and fill me with such sweetness that I shall neither hunger nor thirst forevermore. Who with God the Father and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns world without end.
Prayer To St Ambrose 4
I love and adore You. You have come to me; I am one with You. I want You to remain with me forever, in this life and in the next. Thank you for allowing me to share Your divine life. May I become more like You through this Sacred Food. Let me never take you for granted, but always pray for those whose lives are dark with sin and ignorance and selfishness. Let me remember, in the words of Saint Paul, that “there, but for the grace of God, go I.” Each day, I can become more like You, O Lord. And each day I can pray for those who have never heard the Gospel, or who have heard it and rejected it.
