Prayer of St Clement
O Dearest Jesus, Whose Most Amiable Heart Excludes not even the greatest sinners when they turn to Thee, Grant, I beseech Thee, to me and to all penitent sinners, a heart like unto Thine, that is an humble heart, which even in the midst of temporal honours loves a hidden life, a life little esteemed by men; A meek heart, which bears with everyone, and seeks to be revenged on no one; A patient heart, which is resigned in adversity and happy even in the most trying circumstances; A peaceful heart, which is ever at peace with others and with itself; a disinterested heart, which is always contented with what it has; A heart which loves prayer, and prays often and cheerfully; A heart whose only desire is that God may be known, honoured and loved by all His creatures, which grieves for nothing except when God is offended, despises nothing but sin, wishes for nothing but the Glory of God and its neighbours' salvation; A pure heart, which in all things seeks God alone and desires to please Him; A grateful heart, which does not forget, but duly values the benefits of God; A strong heart, which 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 Divine Will. Amen
