Prayer of Saint Bonaventure~Meditation I

"Pierce O most sweet Lord Jesus, my inmost soul
with the most joyous and healthful wound of Thy love,
with true, serene, and most holy apostolic charity,
that my soul may ever languish and melt with love and longing for Thee,
that my soul may ever long for Thee and faint for Thy courts,
and long to be dissolved and to be with Thee.
(St. Kateri Shrine, NY)
Grant that my soul may ever hunger after Thee, the Bread of Angels,
the refreshment of holy souls, our daily and Supersubstantial Bread,
having all sweetness and savor and every delight of taste..."
Saint Bonaventure said, 
"He who wishes to go on advancing 
from virtue to virtue, from grace to grace, 
should constantly meditate upon 
the passion of Jesus Christ."
