1. To Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament

O Most Sweet Jesus, You delight in being with the children of men and being the food of their souls.

3 times Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be, with the ejaculation, Blessed and praised every moment be the most Holy and Divine Sacrament.

2. To Mary Help of Christians

O Most Holy Virgin, Help of Christians, who, through St John Bosco did work and still continues to work so many wonders, grant we beseech you that through your own motherly goodness and through his merits, we poor sinners may receive the graces we beg with all the fervour of our souls.

3 times Hail Holy Queen, with the ejaculation, Mary Help of Christians, pray for us.

3. To Saint John Bosco

And You, O St John Bosco, offer our prayers to Jesus and Mary and together with the grace we implore grant that through your intercession we may obtain an ever increasing love for Jesus in the Most Holy Sacrament and Mary, Help of Christians. Amen.
