we might one day deserve to be associated with Your eternal happiness.

merit and they may be sanctified. As You have been weeping for me,

to seek those pleasing to your service, by the practise of the virtues
taught in the mysteries of Your Divine Childhood. I beg You to help

simplicity, the filial confidence and the perfect obedience, of
which you give me such a splendid example.
I progress in holiness and one day possess the rewards promised
in heaven to those who practise the lessons of your Holy Childhood.
