Prayer to the Divine Heart of Jesus
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I adore Thee with all the powers of my soul. To Thee, I consecrate all the powers of my soul. To Thee, I consecrate my understanding, my memory, my will, all my thoughts, words and actions. O sweetest Heart, why can I not off Thee the honor, the gratitude, and the love wherewith Thou honorest Thy Father, and wherewith the Angels and the Saints, and Thy most holy and beloved Mother honor Thee in Heaven!
O Divine Heart of Jesus, which for love of us beats in the Sacred Host, I adore Thee, I love Thee, and I implore Thee for Thy grace for all my relatives, friends, benefactors; for poor sinners, prisoners, travelers, the sick, and the dying; for all suffering hearts, and for people of the whole world. May Thy Precious Blood not be lost on any soul, O sweetest Jesus. I comment to Thee in particular the poor suffering souls in Purgatory. For all these graces I wish to implore Thee, O Jesus, with every breath that I draw until the end of my life.
Sweetest Heart of Jesus, imprint my name upon Thy Wounds, save my soul! O Heart of Jesus that lovest us so much, inflame the fire of Thy Divine Love always more and more in our hearts. O Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make our hearts like unto Thine. Sweetest Heart of Jesus, heal the coldness and indifference of my poor heart. Grant that I may love Thee above all things, desire only and alone Thee Who art the happiness of the Saints who already love Thee perfectly. When O Lord, shall I, united with them, love Thee perfectly in Heaven? Amen.
A Spiritual Communion By St. Conrad of Parzham
I have come to spend a few moments with Thee, O Jesus, and in spirit I prostrate myself in the dust before Thy Holy Tabernacle to adore Thee, my Lord and God, in deepest humiliy. Once more a day has come to its close, dear Jesus, another day which brings me nearer to the grave and my beloved heavenly home. Once more, O Jesus, my heart longs for Thee, the true Bread of Life, which containes all sweetness and relish. O my Jesus, mercifully grant me pardon for the faults and ingratitutde of this day, and come to me to refresh my poor heart which longs for Thee. As the heart pants for the waters, as the parched earth longs for the dew of heaven, even so does my poor heart long for Thee, Thou Fount of Life. I love Thee, O Jesus, I hope in Thee, I love Thee, and out of love for Thee I regret sincerely all my sins. May Thy peace and Thy benediction be mine now and always and for all eternity. Amen.
