Imploring His graces...

 "Blessed may you be, my Lord Jesus Christ. For our salvation
you allowed your side and heart to be pierced with a lance
and from that side water and your precious blood flowed out
abundantly for our redemption. - St. Bridget of Sweden
Artist: Peter Paul Rubens

"Oh Jesus! Sweetness of hearts,
delight of the spirit,
by the bitterness of the vinegar and gall which
Thou didst taste on the Cross of Love for us,
grant us the grace to receive worthily
Thy Precious Body and Blood during our life
and at the hour of our death,
that they may serve as a remedy
and consolation for our souls.  Amen.”
