Saint-Pascal-Baylon.jpgHoly Jesus, Saint Pascal Baylon defended Your true Presence in the Eucharist.  Intensely devoted to Your consecrated Body and Blood, he often spent much of the night in prayer before the altar.  You rewarded him with ecstasies and raptures, which he humbly kept hidden to avoid praise.  I ask him to pray for an increase in my devotion to the Eucharist, and for greater appreciation of Holy Communion in my church.  I especially lift up to You, O Lord, those who do not believe in the True Presence, and those who take it for granted.  May we experience You more fully whenever we see and consume Your Host.  Saint Pascal Baylon, pray for us.  Amen.
