THANKSGIVING PRAYER TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS (St. Josemaria)
As we see Jesus so close to our concerns, to our problems, to our ideals, we say to him:
“I give you thanks, my Jesus, for your decision to become perfect Man, with a Heart which loves and is most lovable, which loved unto death and suffered, which was filled with joy and sorrow, which delighted in the things of men and showed us the way to Heaven, which subjected itself heroically to duty and acted with mercy, which watched over the poor and the rich and cared for the sinner and the just alike.
I give you thanks, my Jesus. Give us hearts that will measure up to yours!”
(St. Josemaria, Furrow, 813).
Cor lesu sacratissimum et misericors, dona nobis pacem.
Most sweet and merciful Heart of Jesus, grant us peace.
