Keep my Heart Pure

As I read this prayer, I said to myself that good Saint Joseph, whom we celebrate during this month of March, could have spoken these beautiful words himself.
I dare to think that our founder, Father Louis-Marie Parent, O.M.I., would no doubt have dedicated it to him.

jospeh aLord, keep my heart pure,
deliver my thoughts from all pride,
stamp my words with your anointing,
convert me to your mentality,
engrave in my heart the riches of your forgiveness,
lead me to being simple and flexible.
Correct me, straighten my path,
align me with your wishes,
stimulate me every twenty-four hours.

Make me aware of what you prepare me for,
every day a special cross
which helps me to follow Jesus, which brings me closer to Mary,
which will surely lead me to the resurrection.

Lord, give me the grace to think like you,
to act like Jesus,
to allow myself to be seized by the divine Spirit,
to live discreetly like Mary.

Lord, you want me to be a servant,
you show me the last place, where I belong;
I agree to be your instrument,
a glove of poor quality that you make supple,
in which you keep your hand as long as you wish.

Lord, you are my refuge, my rock,
an oasis, a solitude, a silence, a presence;
I stay near you,
I bow, I prostrate myself, I adore you,
I love you.

I Welcome You, p. 127, publication by Father Louis-Marie Parent, O.M.I.
