“I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.”
O Lord, who has mercy upon all, take away from me my sins,
and mercifully kindle in me the fire of Thy Holy Spirit.
Take away from me the heart of stone, and give me a heart of flesh,
a heart to love and adore You, a heart to delight in You,
to follow and enjoy You, for Christ’s sake. Amen.
Ambrose of Milan, 4th century
