Saint John Vianney's prayer to Jesus

Saint John Vianney, the patron saint of parish priests, composed his prayer to Jesus in the 19th century.

The prayer reflects Vianney's deep religious feelings, which were praised by Pope John XXIII in his encyclical Sacerdotii Nostri Primordia in 1959.

The prayer is quoted in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. [1]

Words of the prayer

I love You, O my God, and my only desire is to love You until the last breath of my life.
I love You, O my infinitely lovable God,
and I would rather die loving You, than live without loving You.
I love You, Lord, and the only grace I ask is to love You eternally
My God, if my tongue cannot say in every moment that I love You,
I want my heart to repeat it to You as often as I draw breath.
