This lovely little prayer is perfect for the Christmas Octave and beyond.
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.
Since you are here…
