Pierce My Soul

July 15, 2023

Pierce, O most sweet Lord Jesus,
my innermost soul with the most joyous
and healthful wound of Your love,
and with true, calm and apostolic charity,
that my soul may ever languish and melt
with entire love and longing for You,
may yearn for You and for Your courts,
may long to be dissolved and to be with You.
Grant that my soul may hunger after You,
the Bread of Angels,
the refreshment of holy souls,
our daily and supersubstantial bread,
having all sweetness and savor
and every delightful taste.
