Dear Lord, I adore thy sacred heart, which I desire to enter with acts of love, praise, adoration, and thanksgiving. I offer thee my own heart as I sigh to thee from its very depths, asking that thou will worketh through me in all that I do this day; thus may I draw thee closer to me than thou wert before. I offer thee all the crosses and sufferings of the world, in union with thy life on earth, in expiation for sins. Please join my every action and heartbeat to the pulsations of thy heart. I unite all my works of this day to those labors thou didst perform while thou wert on earth, bathing them in thy precious blood, and I offer them to the heavenly father so that many souls may be saved.
