My loving Savior,
consume my heart in that burning love with which your own Heart is inflamed. Pour out upon me those graces which flow from your love. Let my heart be so united with yours that our wills may be one, and my will may in all things be conformed with your will. May your will be the guide and rule of my desires and of my actions. Amen.
