Starting Thursday Off Right: Lonely Heart Edition

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

PATER NOSTER, qui es in caelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie, et dimitte nobis debita nostra sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo. Amen.


Today is the Feast of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, a recurring theme of late around here.  Here is a beautiful prayer to the Eucharistic Heart.  It is most moving, and edifying.


Prayer to the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus
Eucharistic Heart of Jesus,
gracious companion of our exile,
I adore Thee.

Eucharistic Heart of Jesus,
lonely Heart,
humiliated Heart,
abandoned Heart,
forgotten Heart,
despised Heart,
outraged Heart,
Heart ignored by men,
Heart which loves our own hearts;
Heart pleading for our love,
Heart so patient in waiting for us,
Heart so eager to listen to our prayers,
Heart so anxious for our requests,
Heart, unending source of new graces,
Heart so silent, yet desiring to speak to souls,
Heart, welcome refuge of the hidden life,
Heart, teacher of the secrets of union with God,
Heart of Him Who sleeps but watches always,
Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.

Jesus Victim, I desire to comfort Thee;
I unite myself to Thee;
I offer myself in union with Thee.

I regard myself as nothing in Thy Presence.
I long to forget myself in order to think only of Thee,
to be despised and forgotten for love of Thee.
I have no desire to be understood or loved by anyone but Thee.

I will keep silent in order to listen to Thee,
and I will abandon myself in order to lose myself in Thee.

Grant that I may thus satisfy Thy thirst for my salvation,
Thy burning thirst for my holiness,
and that once purified I may give Thee a sincere and pure love.
I am anxious not to tire Thee further with waiting:
take me, I hand myself over to Thee.
I give Thee all my actions,
my mind to be enlightened,
my heart to be directed,
my will to be stabilized,
my wretchedness to be relieved,
my soul and body to be nourished by Thee.

Eucharistic Heart of my Savior,
Whose Blood is the life of my soul,
may I myself cease to live and Thou alone live in me.
