Consolatio Christi

JESUS, may your compassionate love flow into me,
and your Mother’s heart enfold me.

May your suffering and death be my strength and life.

Jesus, with you by my side, enough has been given.

May the shelter I seek be the shadow your cross.
Let me not run from the love which you offer,
But hold me safe from the forces of evil.

On each my dying’s shed your light and your love.

Keep calling to me until that day comes, when,
with your saints,
I may praise you forever. Amen.
