HEART OF JESUS
Traditional Irish Prayer
Sacred Heart of Jesus, broken, bleeding, crowned with piercing
with the pain of all our sins, I worship You in Your sacrificial
suffering for mankind.
Have mercy on me, a sinner, whose misdeeds
and neglect have added to Your anguish.
O God, forgive me for all the evil infractions of my life:
My sins of action and my sins of omission,
My sins in youth and My sins in adulthood,
My sins of the body and my sins of the mind,
My sins which I have confessed,
My sins which I have forgotten,
My sins against others
in thought, word, and evil deed.
O, my good God, I am sorry
for all these offenses, which I have committed in return
for Your constant care
and Your abundant gifts and goodness to me.
With Your help and grace and strength
I hope to sin no more.
Keep Your image always before my mind
to give me courage and to strengthen
Divine Heart of Jesus, all
this I pray
in deepest love and in Your Holy Name,
