Prayer of Saint Clare to the Holy Wounds of Jesus
Glory and Praise be to You,
Most loving Jesus Christ,
Most Sacred Wound in Your Own Side.
By that Adorable and Holy Wound
You made known to the soldier Longinus,
in the opening he made in
Your infinite mercy.
O most gentle Jesus I ask You, that,
having redeemed me by
Baptism from the stain of original sin,
do now by Your Precious
which is offered and which is received throughout the world,
deliver me from all evils, past, present and to come.
By Your most bitter death
give me a lively faith, firm hope and a
that with my whole heart I may love You
with all my
soul and strength.
Make me persevere in Your service,
steadfast in good works,
so that I may be always able to please You,
my Lord Jesus Christ.
Saint Clare of Assisi
