Prayers to the Wounded Heart of Jesus
O my Most Loving and Gentle Jesus, I desire
with all the affections of my heart, that all beings
should praise Thee, honor Thee and glorify
Thee eternally for that sacred wound wherewith
Thy divine side was rent.
I deposit, enclose, conceal in that wound and
in that opening in Thy Heart, my heart and all
my feelings, thoughts, desires, intentions and
all the faculties of my soul.
I entreat Thee, by the precious Blood and Water
that flowed from Thy Most Loving Heart, to take
entire possession of me, that Thou may guide me
in all things. Consume me in the burning fire of
Thy holy Love, so that I may be so absorbed and
transformed into Thee that I may no longer be but
one with Thee. Amen.
– Lanspergius, the Carthusian
