The priest opens the tabernacle door to enthrone and incense the Blessed Sacrament,
and the hymn begins:

O, salutáris hóstia,

Da robur, fer auxílium.

Nobis donet in pátria.

Act of Consecration

Most sweet Jesus, Redeemer of the human race, look down upon us humbly prostrate before Thine altar. We are Thine, and Thine we wish to be; but, to be more surely united with Thee, behold each one of us freely consecrates himself today to Thy most Sacred Heart. Many indeed have never known Thee; many too, despising Thy precepts, have rejected Thee. Have mercy on them all, most merciful Jesus, and draw them to Thy sacred Heart. Be Thou King, O Lord, not only of the faithful who have never forsaken Thee, but also of the prodigal children who have abandoned Thee; grant that they may quickly return to Thy Father's house lest they die of wretchedness and hunger. Be Thou King of those who are deceived by erroneous opinions, or whom discord keeps aloof, and call them back to the harbor of truth and unity of faith, so that there may be but one flock and one Shepherd. Be Thou King of all those who are still involved in the darkness of idolatry or of Islamism, and refuse not to draw them into the light and kingdom of God. Turn Thine eyes of mercy towards the children of the race, once Thy chosen people: of old they called down upon themselves the Blood of the Savior; may it now descend upon them a laver of redemption and of life. Grant, O Lord, to Thy Church assurance of freedom and immunity from harm; give peace and order to all nations, and make the earth resound from pole to pole with one cry: "Praise be to the divine Heart that wrought our salvation; to it be glory and honor for ever." Amen.

Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament

Tantum ergo sacraméntum
Venerémur cérnui
Et antíquum documéntum
Novo cedat rítui;
Præstet fides suppleméntum
Sénsuum deféctui.

Genitóri Genitóque
Laus et jubilátio
Salus, honor, virtus quoque
Sit et benedítio;
Procedénti ab utróque
Compar sit laudátio.


[P]  Panem de cælo præstitisti eis.

[All]  People: Omne delectamentum in se habentem.

[P]  Oremus: Deus, qui nobis sub Sacramenti mirabili Passionis tuæ memoriam reliquisti: tribue, quæsumus; ita nos Corporis et Sanguinis tui sacra mysteria venerari, ut redemptionis tuæ fructum in nobis jugiter sentiamus. Qui vivus et regnas in sæcula sæculorum.

[All]  Amen.
