Jesus, I love you!
Pio Ciampa s.j.
, how often I think that I am too busy to pray!
+ I want to make a habit, Jesus,
of speaking to You as a Friend, to confide my joys and sorrows.
+ And so, from the boftom of my heart, I want to say simply:
+ When I am tired, help me still to say:
+ When I find it hard to forgive, I need only to repeat:
+ When darkness comes on me, and I donít know where You are, I wall call on You, and say:
+ My daily task will become easier, and my work will become a prayer which says:
+ What trouble can shake me, what suffering overcome me, if I can always repeat:
+ For the joys You give me, for the graces You shower on me, my Thank You will always be:
+ And simply to please You, for no other reason, let me often say:
+ And when the evening of my life comes, and You invite me home, let me say for one last time here below, before I depart:
+ And when You call me for judgement, be merciful, Lord, because You know how many times I have said:
"What trouble can shake me,
"Jesus, You alone are my strength, my courage, my support..."
