Prayer of the Week

Ah! sweet Jesus,
pierce the marrow of my soul
with the healthful arrows of your love,
that it may truly burn, and melt, and languish,
with the desire for you alone;
that it may desire to be dissolved, and to be with you;
let it hunger alone for the bread of life;
let it thirst after you,
the spring and fountain of eternal light,
the stream of true pleasure;
let it always desire you, seek you, and find you,
and sweetly rest in you. Amen.

St. Bonaventure (1221-1274)
