St. Bonaventure

st. bonaventure

Lord Jesus Christ, pierce my soul with your love so that I may always long for you alone, who are the bread of angels and the fulfilment of the soul’s deepest desires. May my heart always hunger and feed on you, so that my soul may be filled with sweetness in your presence. May my soul thirst for you, who are the source of life, wisdom, knowledge, light, and all the riches of God our Father. May I always seek and find you, think about you, speak to you, and do everything for the honour and glory of your name. Be always my hope, my peace, my refuge and help in whom my heart is rooted so that I may never be separated from you.

St. Bonaventure, 13th century.
