Conformity to the Sacred Heart

 

JESUS CALLING PETER


O dearest Jesus, Whose Most Amiable Heart excludes not even the greatest sinners if they turn to Thee,

Grant, I beseech Thee, to me and to all penitent sinners a heart like unto Thine,

That is, a humble heart that even in the midst of temporal honors loves a hidden life,

a life little esteemed by men;

A meek heart that bears with all and seeks to be revenged on no one;

A patient heart that is resigned in adversity and happy even in the most trying circumstances;

A peaceful heart that is ever at peace with others and with itself;

A disinterested heart that is always content with what it has;

A heart that loves prayer and prays often and cheerfully;

A heart that only desires that God may be known, honored, and loved by all His creatures,

That grieves for nothing except for when God is offended,

Despises nothing but sin,

Wishes for nothing but the Glory of God and its neighbor's salvation;

A pure heart that in all things seeks God alone and desires to please Him;

A grateful heart that does not forget but duly values the benefits of God;

A strong heart that is daunted by no evil but bears all adversity for the love of God;

A heart liberal to the poor and compassionate to the suffering souls in Purgatory;

A well-ordered heart, whose joys and sorrows, desires and aversions,

Nay, whose every motion is regulated according to the Will of God.

 

Prayer of St. Clement Mary Hofbauer, C.SS.R.

This is a great prayer.  Just wanted to feature it since the Feast Day of the Sacred Heart is this coming Friday.
