Prayer: Claude La Colombiere

O God, what will you do to conquer
the fearful hardness of our hearts?

Lord, you must give us new hearts,
tender hearts, sensitive hearts,
to replace hearts that are made of
marble and of bronze.
You must give us your own heart, Jesus.
Come, lovable Heart of Jesus.
Place your heart deep
in the center of our hearts
and enkindle in each heart a flame of love
as strong, as great,
as the sun of all the reasons
that I have for loving you, my God.

O holy heart of Jesus,
dwell hidden in my heart,
so that I may live only in you
and only for you,
so that, in the end, I may live with you
eternally in heaven.

Memorial: January 15
