“Oh Jesus! Sweetness of hearts, delight of the spirit,
by the bitterness of the vinegar and gall which Thou didst
taste on the Cross for Love of 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.”
St Bridget (Birgitta) of
Founded religious order, Brigittines
