Infant of Prague Novena, Day 3

Infant Jesus Eyes

O Miraculous Infant Jesus, prostrate before Your sacred Image, we beseech You to cast a merciful look on our troubled hearts. Let Your tender heart so inclined to pity be softened by our prayers, and grant us that grace which we so ardently implore.
Take from us all affliction and despair, all trials and misfortunes with which we are laden. For Your sacred Infancy’s sake hear our prayers and send us consolation and aid, that we may praise You with the Father and the Holy Spirit forever and ever. Amen.

THIRD DAY

Venerate the eyes of the Divine Infant to gain complete victory over temptations.

Aspiration
Oh, You shine like the stars of heaven, most beautiful eyes of my most beloved Infant Jesus. I cannot look at You without feeling delight and happiness and ecstasy. How fortunate I am to have Your kind look! What pleasure to look at You. Your eyes reveal the sight not only of visible men alone, but mainly that of the invisible Deity. Your eyes bring delight and fear, love and respect to mankind.

Prayer
Truly, I resolved never to insult You again, my dearest Jesus. Yet, I am fully aware of my changeable mind and afraid that I could break my promise under duress of temptations. My evil desires, Satan and the world do not cease trying to make me fall. For they are my sworn enemies. Where shall I look for help and find it? Where else than with You, my Infant of Prague?
