Sacred Heart of Jesus,
teach me an entire forgetfulness of myself,
since there is no other way of reaching You.
Grant that I may do nothing that is unworthy of You.
Teach me what I ought to do
to attain Your pure love,
for You have inspired me with this desire.
I feel in myself a great longing to please You.
But I am helpless
without Your special light and strength.
do Your Will in me,
though I often opposed it in the past.
You must do all,
Divine Heart of Jesus.
It shall be Your glory alone if I become a Saint,
and it is for Your glory alone
that I desire to be perfect.
St Claude de la Columbiere
