The Thinking 

Prayer for Holiness

February 9, 2018


Annunciation (detail), Fra Filippo Lippi

“IMMACULATE Heart of Mary, perfect Model of Sanctity, take my soul and mold it according to thy sublime perfections. Purify my heart and set it free from every obstacle to holiness, so that detached from self and the pleasures of sense, thou mayest adorn it with the virtues and perfection of thy own Immaculate Heart. Then, lead my soul to that divine intimacy which alone can satisfy the immense capacity for love and union with which God has created the human heart. From thee, I confidently hope for this grace of holiness, and I entrust my eternal destiny to thy Immaculate Heart.”
