The unceasing work given to us...

 Prayer by St. John Eudes to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

O Heart all lovable and all loving of my Savior, be the Heart of my heart,
the soul of my soul, the spirit of my spirit, the life of my life and the
sole principle of all my thoughts, words and actions, of all the faculties
of my soul, and of all my senses, both interior and exterior.  Amen.

"Your most loving Heart, O Jesus,
dwells in this Sacrament
burning with love for us.
It is there continually performing
thousands of good deeds towards us."
