Daily Prayer - I Wish to Receive You

O God, I would wish to receive You with that love with which the most holy and loving souls, with which Immaculate Mary received You. With their Communion I unite this Communion of mine. Most holy Virgin, my Mother, Mary, behold I am going to receive Your Son. Give me this day my Jesus, as you gave Him to the shepherds and to the Magi. I wish to receive Him from my most pure hands; tell Him that I am your servant, and that I am devoted to you; and when He comes to me, He will look on me with a more loving eye, and will unite Himself more closely to me.
