We bring to you, O Lord, our poverty of soul to be
transformed by your beauty; our waywardness of passion to be
tamed by your love; our stubbornness of will to be conformed
to your commandments and our coldness of heart to be enkindled
by your grace; now and for ever. Amen.

Amen.

O, blessed Jesus, immortal and victorious, by the sorrow
you suffered when all the powers of your heart failed you;
have mercy on us and help us. Come to us, in the hour of our

heart, to be laid at your feet, to be placed on your breast,
to be embraced by your Spirit. Amen.
