A Prayer St. Madeleine Sophie Recited Every Day

Oh Sacred Heart of Jesus,
give me a heart that is one with your own;
a humble heart
that knows and loves nothingness;
a gentle heart
that holds and calms its own anxieties;
a loving heart
that has compassion for the suffering of others;
a pure heart
that recoils even at the appearance of evil;
a detached heart
that longs for nothing other than the goodness of heaven;
a heart detached from self-love and embraced by the love of God,
its attention focused on God,
its goodness is its only treasure
in time and in eternity.
