Infant Jesus of Prague

Infant Jesus of Prague

O Dearest Jesus, tenderly loving us, Thy greatest joy is to dwell among us and to bestow Thy blessing upon us! Though I am not worthy that Thou shouldst behold me with love, I feel myself drawn to Thee, O dear Infant Jesus, because Thou dost gladly pardon me and exercise Thine almighty power over me.

So many who turned with confidence to Thee have received graces and their petitions granted. Behold me: in spirit I kneel before thy miraculous image on Thine altar in Prague and lay open my heart to Thee, with its prayers, petitions and hopes. Especially the affair of (Name your request) do I enclose in Thy loving Heart. Govern me and do with me and mine according to Thy holy will, for I know that in Thy Divine wisdom and love Thou wilt ordain everything for the best. Almighty gracious Infant Jesus, do not withdraw Thy hand from us, but protect and bless us forever.

I pray Thee, sweetest Infant, in the name of Thy Blessed Mother Mary, who cared for Thee with such tenderness, and the great reverence with which St. Joseph carried Thee in his arms, comfort me and grant my petition, that I may bless and thank Thee forever with all my heart. Amen.

St. Ignatius of Loyola was the Founder of the Society of Jesuits. His feast is celebrated on July 31st. St. Ignatius recommended the following prayer to penitents.

Take, O Lord, and receive my entire liberty, my memory, my understanding and my whole will. All that I am and all that I possess You have given me: I surrender it all to You to be disposed according to Your will. Give me only Your love and Your grace; with these I will be rich enough, and will desire nothing more. Amen.

Prayer to the Blessed Virgin Mary for Acquiring Virtues

Print Friendly

O Mary, Mother of Mercy, others may ask of thee what they please – bodily health, worldly goods and advantages – but I ask for whatever thou seest to be most needful for me and what is most in conformity with thy pure heart.

Thou art so humble, obtain for me humility and love of contempt.

Thou were so patient under the sufferings and trials of live; obtain for me patience and fortitude.

Thou wert most charitable toward thy neighbour; obtain for me charity toward all, and particularly charity toward those who are in any way my enemies.

Thou art filled with the love of God; obtain for me the gift of His pure and holy love.

Thou art entirely united to the Divine Will; obtain for me complete conformity to the Will of God in all things. Thou art the holiest of all creatures, O Mary; make me a saint.

Love for me is not wanting on thy part; thou canst do all and thou hast the will to obtain all for me. The only thing, then, that can prevent me from receiving thy favors is neglect on my part in having recourse to thee, or too little confidence in thine intercession. These gifts I ask of thee, hoping with the greatest confidence to receive them, O Mary, my Mother, my hope, my love, my life, my refuge, my help and my consolation. Amen.
