Overcome Evil Passions And To Become A Saint
Dear Jesus, in the Sacrt of the Altar,
Be forever thanked and praised.
Love, worthy of all celestial and terrestrial love!
Who, out of infinite love for me,
Didst assume our human nature,
Didst shed Thy most Precious Blood in the cruel scourging,
And didst expire on a shameful Cross
For our eternal welfare!
Now illumined with lively faith,
With the outpouring of my whole soul
And the fervor of my heart,
I humbly beseech Thee,
Through the infinite merits of Thy painful sufferings,
Give me strength and courage
To destroy every evil passion which sways my heart,
To bless Thee by the exact fulfillment of my duties,
Supremely to hate all sin,
And thus to become a Saint.
