TRADCATKNIGHT: IMITATION OF THE SACRED HEART: HOW GREATLY WE SHOULD ESTEEM HOLINESS, AND HOW MUCH WE SHOULD STRIVE AFTER IT
I long to be a Saint, not that, on earth, I may be numbered among the Saints, but that, in Heaven, I may glorify Thee among the Elect: not so much through fear of pain or hope of reward, as through love for Thee, most kind and sweet Jesus,-----that I may the more love Thee, the more honor Thee, now and for evermore.
Behold! O Lord Jesus, I have the will to become a Saint; so long as I draw breath, I shall not cease to will it: I beg and entreat Thee, by Thy most Sacred Heart, help my good will.
