Our Morning Offering – 13 June – “Month of the Sacred Heart” – Sunday within the Octave
Lord, Give Me Your Heart
By St Claude de la Colombiere SJ (1641-1682)
Apostle of Devotion to the Sacred Heart
and Spiritual Director to St Margaret Mary Alacoque
O God, what will You do to conquer
the fearful hardness of our hearts?
Lord, You must give us new hearts,
tender hearts, sensitive hearts,
to replace hearts that are made
of marble and of bronze.
You must give us Your own Heart, Jesus.
Come, lovable Heart of Jesus.
Place Your Heart deep
in the centre of our hearts
and enkindle in each heart
a flame of love as strong,
as great, as the sum of all the reasons
that we have for loving You, my God.
O holy Heart of Jesus,
dwell hidden in our hearts,
so that we may live only in You
and only for You,
so that, in the end, we may live
with You eternally in heaven.
