HWP: Salutation of the Heart of Jesus & Mary

June is the month of the Sacred Heart, in which we honor the human heart of Christ, that Heart which continues to exist in heaven and is filled with the love that led the Lord to die for us on Calvary. In searching various prayers, I came across this little pray to the Heart of Jesus and Mary which consecrates the heart of the one praying it. So without further ado, written by St. John Eudes himself,  we present this week's Half-Way Prayer:
Hail, Heart most holy,
Hail, Heart most meek,
Hail, Heart most humble,
Hail, Heart most pure,
Hail, Heart most devout,
Hail, Heart most wise,
Hail, Heart most patient,
Hail, Heart most obedient,
Hail, Heart most vigilent,
Hail, Heart most faithful,
Hail, Heart most blessed,
Hail, Heart most merciful,
Hail, most loving Heart of Jesus and Mary; 
Thee we adore,
Thee we praise,
Thee we glorify,
To Thee do we give thanks;
Thee we love,
With all our heart,
With all our soul,
And with all our strength;
To Thee we offer our heart,
We give it,
We consecrate it,
We immolate it;
Accept and posses it entirely,
And purify it,
And illuminate it,
And sanctify it;
that in it Thou may live and reign
both now and forever,
and in the ages of ages.
Amen.
