Cleans Me From My Hidden Ills

All good, holy, wise, and powerful physician, cleanse me from my hidden ills! How many are there that I do not recall?
May your grace with which to search my reins and heart be with me. Show me the evil desires and evil works that you see but I do not. 
Look down kindly and open a fountain of waters so that while there is time they may be washed away and blotted out by your grace.
Amen
With gratitude to Companion Of Jesus

Nothing better than quoting St. Bellarmine :)

Would that God would bring men like St. Robert Bellarmine into the Society of Jesus once again!
