SS. Cordis Iesu et Mariae
O Blessed Emperor Karl, you accepted the difficult
tasks and burdensome challenges that God gave you during your
life. In every thought, decision and action you
trusted always in the Holy Trinity. We pray to you to intercede for us
with the Lord our God to give us faith and courage, so that even in the
most difficult situations of our earthly lives we may not lose heart,
but continue faithfully in the footsteps of Christ.
Ask for us the grace that our hearts may be
moulded into the likeness of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Help us to work
with compassion and strength for the poor and needy, to fight with
courage for peace in our homes and in the world, and in every situation
to trustingly place our lives in the hands of God, until we reach Him,
as you did, through Christ our Lord.
