Prayer to the Infant Jesus

 

Dear infant Jesus,

loving and kind,

You draw all men to Yourself

through the power of Your infinite Love.

Light of the World,

draw me to You as You did the shepherds and wise men

to Your crib in Bethlehem,

there to adore You,

to be strengthened by Your sweet Presence,

and be inspired to bring all men to you.

Come into my heart, another poor Bethlehem;

place me within the loving embrace of Your Mother

and the secure protection of Your foster-father, St. Joseph

where I may love, serve and give myself to You,

until the end of my days,

when I hope to be escorted by Your angels

to the place you have prepared for me

in Your Fatherís eternal kingdom.

 

May Your Holy Name be praised forever and ever!

Amen.
