A Prayer to the Sacred Heart

My God, my Saviour, I adore your Sacred Heart, for that heart is the seat and source of all your tenderest human affections for us sinners, all your Divine Charity towards us. When you condescend to suffer me to receive you, make my heart beat with your Heart. Purify it of all that is earthly, all that is proud and sensual, all that is hard and cruel. So fill it with you, that in your love and your fear it may have peace.

John Henry Newman
