From all evil, (Deliver us, O Jesus)
From all sin,
From all distrust of Thy infinite goodness,
From all distrust of Thy infinite goodness, miracles,
From all lukewarmness in Thy veneration,
From trials and misfortunes,
Through the mysteries of Thy holy childhood,
We sinners, (Beseech Thee hear us.)
Through the intercession of Mary, Thy virgin Mother, and Joseph, Thy foster father,
That Thou wouldst pardon us,
That Thou wouldst bring us to true repentance,
That Thou wouldst preserve and increase in us love and devotion to Thy sacred infancy,
That Thou wouldst never withdraw Thy miraculous hand from us,
That Thou wouldst keep us mindful of Thy numberless benefits,
That Thou wouldst inflame us more and more with love for Thy Sacred Heart,
That Thou wouldst graciously deign to hear all who call upon Thee with confidence,
That Thou wouldst preserve our country in peace, t That Thou wouldst free us from all impending evils,
That Thou wouldst give eternal life to all who act generously toward Thee, That Thou wouldst pronounce a merciful sentence on us at the judgement,
That Thou wouldst in Thy miraculous image remain our consoling refuge,
Jesus, Son of God and of Mary,
Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world, Spare us, O Jesus.
Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world, Graciously hear us, O Jesus.
Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world, Have mercy on us, O Jesus.
Jesus hear us.
Jesus graciously hear us.
Our Father, etc.


O miraculous Infant Jesus! prostrate before Thy sacred image, we beseech Thee to cast a merciful look on our troubled hearts. Let Thy tender Heart, so inclined to pity, be softened at our prayers, and grant us that grace for which we ardently implore Thee. Take from us all affliction and despair, all trials and misfortunes with which we are laden. For Thy sacred infancy's sake hear our prayers and send us consolation and aid, that we may praise Thee, with the Father and the Holy Ghost, forever and ever. Amen.
