O MY LORD JESUS, I ASK THEE TO GRANT ME TWO GRACES

PRAYER OF ST FRANCIS 

O my Lord Jesus Christ, I ask thee to grant me two graces before I die; first, that thou wilt make me feel in soul and body, as much as is possible for me, the pain that thou, my sweet Lord, didst endure in the hour of thy cruel Passion; second, that I may feel in my heart, as much as I possibly can, that excess of love which induced thee to suffer for us, poor sinners, such unheard-of torments. Amen.

– From: St Anthony’s Treasury, 1916
