O dearest Jesus, Whose Most Amiable Heart excludes not even the greatest sinners if they turn to Thee, grant, we beseech Thee, to me and all penitent sinners, a heart like unto Thine;
That is, a humble heart that even in the midst of temporal honours, loves a hidden life, a life little esteemed by men;
A meek heart that bears with all and seeks to be revenged on no one;
A patient heart that is resigned in adversity and happy even in the midst of most trying circumstances;
A peaceful heart that is ever at peace with others and with itself;
A disinterested heart that is always content with what it has;
A heart that loves Prayer and Prays often and cheerfully;
That grieves for nothing except when God is offended;
Despises nothing but sin;
Wishes for nothing but the Glory of God and its neighbour's salvation;
A pure heart that in all things seeks God alone and desires to please Him;
A grateful heart that does not forget, but duly values, the benefits of God;
A strong heart that is daunted by no evil, but bears all adversity for the love of God;
A heart liberal to the poor and compassionate to the suffering Souls in Purgatory;
A well-ordered heart, whose joys and sorrows, desires and aversions,
Nay, whose every motion is regulated according to The Will of God.
~Prayer of Saint Clement Mary Hofbauer, C.S.S.R.
