PRAYER TO OVERCOME EVIL PASSIONS AND TO BECOME A SAINT

Crucified Jesus and child

“Dear Jesus, in the Sacrament of the Altar, be forever thanked and praised.  Love, worthy of all celestial and terrestrial love!  Who out of infinite love for me, ungrateful sinner, didst assume our human nature, didst shed Thy most precious blood in the cruel scourging, and didst expire on a shameful cross for our eternal welfare!  Now, illumined with lively faith, with the outpouring of my whole soul and the fervor of my heart, I humbly beseech Thee, through the infinite merits of Thy painful sufferings, give me strength and courage to destroy every evil passion which sways my heart, to bless Thee in my greatest afflictions, to glorify Thee by the exact fulfilment of my duties, supremely to hate all sin, and thus to become a saint.  Amen.”

Prayer By Pius IX, January 1, 1866 –  (Indulgence of 100 days, once a day.)
