Virgin, model of every virtue, I kneel at your feet, filled with shame at my coldness and ingratitude [toward the Eucharist].
Pray to Jesus for me that He will never come to my heart without directing all its movements and turning them entirely to Himself.
May He take away this wretched heart of mine that is so unworthy of Him and create in me a new heart. May He give me a heart like yours: ardent and generous, tender and constant toward Him, as yours now is toward us."
(From The Imitation of Mary)
