prayer Litany of the Blessed Sacrament

February 13, 2008 Leave a comment

Benediction @ SteubenvilleToday, at Holy Hour (before the Blessed Sacrament with benediction & adoration), I was praying the Litany of the Blessed Sacrament and meditated on some descriptions of the Blessed Sacrament that stood out (and haven’t heard much of).  [full litany at catholicdoors.com]

  • Corn of the elect, 
  • Wine whose fruits are virgins, 
  • Blessed Sacrament adorationFood of Angels,
  • Memorial of the wonders of God,
  • Super-substantial Bread,
  • Heavenly Antidote against the poison of sin,
  • Medicine of immortality,
  • Bread made flesh by the omnipotence of the Word,
  • Sacrament of piety,
  • Priest and Victim,
  • Spiritual Sweetness tasted in its proper source,
  • Pledge of future glory

Also, a petition in the litany … “That You would preserve and increase our faith, reverence, and devotion toward this admirable Sacrament” … we beseech You, hear us.
