believe, O Lord, but strengthen my faith.
Heart of Jesus, I love You; but increase my love.
Heart of Jesus, I trust in You;
but give greater vigor to my confidence.
Heart of Jesus, I give my heart to You;
but enclose it in You that it may never be
separated from You.
Heart of Jesus, I am all Yours; take care of my promise
so that I may be able to put it in practice,
even unto the complete sacrifice of my life.
Christ and St John the Evangelist, c. 1340, Limewood, Staatliche Museen, Berlin. Blessed Miguel Pro’s Litany to the Sacred Heart.
