Traditional Prayers for Anglican Catholics

Spiritual Longing

O sweet Saviour Christ,
by the divers torments of thy most bitter Passion,
take from me, good Lord,
this lukewarm fashion or rather key-cold meditation,
and this dullness in praying to thee.
And give me thy grace to long for thy Holy Sacraments,
and especially to rejoice in the Presence of thy blessed Body,
sweet Saviour Christ,
in the Holy Sacrament of the Altar,
and duly to thank thee for thy gracious visitation therewith. Amen.

St Thomas More (1478-1535)
