PRAYER TO THE SACRED HEAD
Of Our Blessed Lord,
As the Seat of Divine Wisdom.
(With Ecclesiastical Approval)
WISDOM of the Sacred Head guide me in all my ways.
O Love of the Sacred Heart, consume me with Thy fire.
(Three Glorias, in honour of the Divine Will, Memory and Understanding.)
O Seat of Divine Wisdom, and guiding Power, which governs all the motions and love of the Sacred Heart, may all minds know Thee all hearts love Thee and all tongues praise Thee, now and for evermore.
ASPIRATIONS OF TERESA HIGGINSON TO THE SACRED HEAD OF OUR BLESSED LORD
O WILL, which was always in meek subjection to Thy Heavenly Father's, control me in all things, as thou didst govern all the affections and motions of the Sacred Heart of the God made Man.
O UNDERSTANDING, which knows all things, ever guide me with Thy Light.
O MEMORY, in which past, present and future are at once reflected, which is ever mindful of me and always seems studying some new means of giving fresh favours, force me to love Thee more and more.
SOUL OF JESUS, sorrowful unto death would that I could console Thee in Thy bitter anguish and grief.
Imprimatur, Jacobus Canonicus Carr,
Pro Epo Liverpolitano.
