Prayer of the 5 Kisses for Baby Jesus

ADORATION OF THE MAGI

PD

Aleteia - published on 01/01/18

This lovely little prayer is perfect for the Christmas Octave and beyond.

Kissing his little right hand: O my Jesus, what you want, I also want. I want it because you want it, O Jesus.

Kissing his little left hand: Jesus, what you want, I also want. I want it how you want it, O Jesus.

Kissing his little right foot: Jesus, what you want, I also want. I want it when you want it, O Jesus.

Kissing his little left foot: Jesus, what you want, I also want. I want it for as long as you want it, O Jesus.

Kissing his heart: Sweet Lord, give me what I see in your heart.

O my Jesus, my sweet Lord,
Give me what I see in your heart:

Sorrow that love is ever lacking in me.
Love, so that it is never lacking in sorrow.
Sorrow that endures every sorrow.
Love, to despise all other loves.
