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!
