Immaculate Conception

Immaculate Conception


O Jesus! meek and humble of heart, hear me!

From the desire of being esteemed, deliver me, Jesus

From the desire of being loved, …

From the desire of being extolled, …

From the desire of being honoured, …

From the desire of being praised, …

From the desire of being preferred, …

From the desire of being consulted, …

From the desire of being approved, …

From the fear of being humiliated, …

From the fear of being despised, …

From the fear of suffering rebukes, …

From the fear of being calumniated, …

From the fear of being forgotten, …

From the fear of being ridiculed, …

From the fear of being wronged, …

From the fear of being suspected, …

That others may be loved more than I, Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.

That others may be more esteemed than I, …

That in the opinion of the world, others may increase, and I decrease, …

That others may be chosen and I set aside, …

That others may be praised and I unnoticed, …

That others may be preferred to me in everything, …

That others may become holier than I, provided that I may become as holy as I should, …

Amen.
