  • INFANT JESUS

    Infant Jesus meek and mild
    look on me a little child.
    Pity mine and pity me,
    suffer me to come to Thee.

    Heart of Jesus I adore Thee,
    heart of Mary I implore thee,
    heart of Joseph pure and just,
    in these three hearts I place my trust.


    FOR THE LITTLE ONES

    Infant Jesus come to me,
    That I may good and happy be;
    My heart is small; for Thee my all,
    For Thee, dear Jesus, Holy Child.

    What father, mother, teacher say,
    I'll do at once, yes, right away,
    All that they will, I must fulfil,
    For love of Thee, dear Jesus, Child.

    Should wicked satan to me say,
    "Come, little friend, do walk my way,"
    I'll say No! No! I can not go,
    I'll only go with Jesus Child.

    HEART OF THE HOLY CHILD

    Heart of the Holy Child,
    Hide me in Thee;
    Purest and undefiled,
    Purify me;
    Joy of my infant life,
    Far from evil passions rife,
    Troubling this world of strife,
    Keep me with Thee!

    Sweet Child of Bethlehem,
    Open Thine heart;
    Lessons from Nazareth
    Deign to impart.
    Mary and Joseph dear,
    Let us be to Jesus near,
    With you, we shall not fear
    From Him to part.
    Sincerely,

    Shin

  • 'It is related in the chronicles of the Cistercians that a certain monk of Brabant, who was travelling on Christmas-night, as he passed through a forest, heard a cry as it were of a new-born infant. He approached the place whence he heard the cries, and saw a beautiful infant in the middle of the snow, who was crying and trembling with the cold. Moved to compassion, the monk immediately dismounted from his horse, and, approaching the infant, said: "O my child, how is it that thou art thus abandoned to weep and die in the midst of this snow?" And lie heard a voice answer him: "Alas! how can I help crying, I see myself thus abandoned by all, and that no one receives me or has compassion upon me?" And having said this, he disappeared, giving us to understand that he was our Redeemer, who by this vision meant to reprove the ingratitude of men, who, having seen him born for their sake in a stable, leave him to cry there without even pitying him.'

    - St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori, 'The Incarnation, Birth, and Infancy of Jesus Christ'
    Sincerely,

  • Here is a beautiful prayer composed by St. Gertrude, found in the tome The True Prayers of St. Gertrude and St. Mechtilde (trans. Canon John Gray; London: Sheed & Ward, 1936).
