O God,

You, whom I know through Jesus Christ,

may I will serve you

through the grace of Jesus Christ,

May I love you always

in the love of Jesus Christ,

for, through Him alone,

am I able go to you.

May I always Find You Close to Me

You are always near me,

O my God!

And, when I want especially to appeal to your infinite mercy,

I find you always

ready to greet me,

so I find that

I am never very far from you

and I you find you near to me,

like a friend

who is very close to his friend.

O God,

You, whom I know through Jesus Christ,

may I will serve you

through the grace of Jesus Christ,

May I love you always

in the love of Jesus Christ,

for, through Him alone,

am I able go to you.

May I be attached to You above All Things

O God,

my infinite and unique good

make me become attached to you above all things,

and to love you with all the love

of which my soul is capable

in the knowledge of your perfections.

Constantly Transform Me

Lord,

continually transform my faith

in your word,

in the desire for the homeland

where you will appear to me

in all your glory,

and in the love that will unite me to you so that nothing can separate me from you.

O my God,

give me the light,

to see what I am lacking;

the strength to acquire

the virtues that I do not have.

Give me the grace

to follow my vocation,

so that as a true son of the Church and the Holy Virgin,

I am not a too unworthy imitator

of the virtues of Jesus,

my Master.
