PRAYER BY FATHER F. CYRIL OCD
Jesus, you decided to become a child, and I'm coming to you
full of trust. I believe that your attentive love forestalls all my needs. Even for the intercession of your Holy Mother,
you can meet my necessities, spiritual as well as material, if I pray according to your holy will. I love you with all my
heart, all my strength.
I beg your pardon, if my weakness makes me sin. I repeat with the Gospel "Lord, if you want
you can heal me." I leave you to decide how and when. I am ready to accept suffering, if this is your will, but help me not
to become hardened to it, rather to bear fruit. Help me to be a faithful servant and for your sake, holy Child, to love my
neighbour as myself. Almighty Child, unceasingly I pray you to support me in my necessities of the present moment.
me the grace to remain in you, to be possessed and possess you entirely, with your parents, Mary and Joseph, in the eternal
praise of your heavenly servants.
