My heart near Yours...

"Lord, I have looked into your eyes with my eyes. 
I have put my heart near your heart." - St John XXIII

"O Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament,  
I would like to be filled with love for You;
keep me closely united with You,
may my heart be near to Yours.
I want to be to You like the apostle John.
O Mary of the Rosary, keep me recollected
when I say these prayers of yours;
bind me forever, with your rosary,
to Jesus of the Blessed Sacrament.
Blessed be Jesus, my love,
blessed be the Immaculate Virgin Mary."
 St John XXIII - Excerpt from Journal of a Soul
