O Sweetest Jesus

Columban Daily Prayer
September 16, 2021

O sweetest Jesus,
You came into the world
to give all souls the life of Your grace,
and who, to preserve and nourish it in them,
has willed to be the daily cure of their daily infirmities
and their daily sustenance;
we humbly beseech You,
by Your Heart all on fire with love for us,
to pour forth upon them all Your Divine Spirit,
so that those who are unhappily in mortal sin,
may turn to You and regain the life of grace which they have lost,
and those who, through Your gift,
are already living this Divine life,
may draw near daily to Your sacred table,
by means of daily Communion,
they may receive daily the antidote for their venial sins,
and may every day foster within themselves the life of grace;
and may come at last to the possession of that eternal life
which is happiness with You.
