O Gentlest Heart of Jesus   Leave a comment

O Gentlest Heart of Jesus, ever present in the Blessed Sacrament,

ever consumed with burning love for the poor captive souls in Purgatory

have mercy on the soul of Thy departed servant.

Be not severe in Thy judgement but let some drops of Thy Precious Blood

fall upon the devouring flames and

do Thou O Merciful Savior send Thy angels

to conduct Thy departed servant to a place

of refreshment, light, and peace.

O little flower of Jesus,

Ever consoling troubled souls

with Heavenly Graces,

In your unfailing intercession

I place my confident trust.

From the Heart of our Blessed

Savior petition these Blessings

of which I stand in greatest need.

Shower upon me your promised Roses

of Virtue and Grace, dear

St. Therese, so that swiftly advancing in sanctity and

in perfect love of neighbor, I may

someday receive the

Crown of Life Eternal.

Heavenly Father,
Thank You for each and every day You have blessed us with on earth.
Thank You for Your tender mercies.
Thank You for giving us friends and family to share joys and sorrows with.
I ask You to bless my friends, relatives, brothers and sisters in Christ, and
those I care deeply for, who are reading this right now.
Where there is joy, give them continued joy.
Where there is pain or sorrow, give them your peace and mercy.
Where there is self-doubt, release a renewed confidence.
Where there is need, fulfill their needs.
Bless their homes, families, finances, their goings,
and their comings.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
