O Father of mercies,
from whom cometh all that is good,
I offer my humble petitions unto Thee
through the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus,
Thy dearly beloved Son,
in whom Thou art always well pleased
and who loves Thee so much;
vouchsafe to grant me the grace
of a lively faith,
a firm hope
and an ardent charity toward Thee
and toward my neighbour.
Grant me also the grace
to be truly penitent for all my

that so I may be enabled to live always
according to Thy divine good-pleasure,
to do Thy most holy will
in all things
with a generous and willing heart,
and to persevere in Thy love even to the end of my life.
