Couldst thou not watch one hour? Watch ye, and pray that you enter not into temptation. (St. Mark, 14:37-38)

Adoration of Our Lord & Saviour Jesus Christ

in the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar

Thanks for expressing interest in helping to form the ‘Veil of Perpetual Adoration’. The Veil of Perpetual Adoration is an act of charity and reparation to Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, with the specific intention of begging the Sacred Heart to spare the innocence of children who are threatened particularly by public sex-instruction. (The Veil is a joint project of Veil of Innocence and the National Coalition of Clergy and Laity.)

With the Blessed Sacrament suspended in the air over a chalice and bleeding, the Angel at Fatima prostrated himself in adoration, reciting the following prayer:

O Most Holy Trinity, Father Son and Holy Spirit, I adore Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the Most Precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg the conversion of poor sinners.
