September 16 St. Cyprian

O dignity, O holiness, O admirable excellence of suffering used for the perfection and consummation of a God, for the perfection of Jesus, God and Man, for the consummation of Him Who is the consummation and perfection of all things! Great humiliation of Jesus, Who humbled Himself to a state in which He was capable of being perfected and consummated! And the immense dignity of suffering chosen and used by Him and His eternal Father to achieve this perfection and consummation!

-St. Jean Eudes

 

Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, filled with infinite love, accept the consecration that I make to You of all that I am and all that I have. Take my body, my mind, my heart, and my soul. Draw me, day by day, ever nearer to Your Sacred Heart.

Amen.
