Prayer of Saint Bonaventure~Meditation III

"May my soul ever compass Thee, seek Thee, find thee, run to Thee
attain Thee, meditate upon Thee, speak of Thee,
and do all things to the praise and glory of Thy Name,
with humility and discretion, with love and delight, 
with ease and affection 
and with perserverence unto the end.
May Thou alone be ever my hope, my entire assurance!
 Jesus~my riches my delight my pleasure my joy
Jesus~my rest and tranquility
Jesus~my peace my sweetness
Jesus~my fragrance my sweet savor
Jesus~my food my refreshment
Jesus~my refuge my help
Jesus~my wisdom my portion
Jesus~my posession, my treasure
Jesus~in Whom my mind and my heart may ever be fixed
and firmly rooted immovably henceforth and forever."
 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."
