Flood My Soul Jesus

Dear Jesus, help us to spread

your fragrance everywhere we go.

Flood our souls with your spirit and life.

Penetrate and possess our whole being so utterly

that our lives may only be a radiance of yours.

Shine through us and be so in us that every soul

we come in contact with may

feel your presence in our soul.

Let them look up and see

no longer us, but only Jesus.

Stay with us and then we shall begin

to shine as you shine,

so to shine as to be light to others.

The light, O Jesus, will be all from you.

None of it will be ours.

It will be you shining on others through us.

Let us thus praise you in the way

you love best by shining on those around us.

Let us preach you without preaching,

not by words, but by our example;

by the catching force,

the sympathetic influence of what we do,

the evident fullness of the love

our hearts bear to you.

Amen.

 

St. Mother Teresa

Saint Joseph Prayer

St. Joseph whose protection is so great, so strong,

so prompt before the Throne of God,

I place in you all my interests and desires.

O St. Joseph do assist me by your powerful intercession

and obtain for me from your Divine Son

all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, Our Lord;

so that having engaged here below your Heavenly power

I may offer my Thanksgiving and Homage

to the most Loving of Fathers.

O St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating you

and Jesus asleep in your arms.

I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart.

Press him in my name and kiss His fine Head for me,

and ask Him to return the Kiss when I draw my dying breath.

St. Joseph, Patron of departing souls,

pray for us.

Amen.

Prayer of St. Francis

Lord, make me a channel of Thy peace;

where there is hatred, let me sow love;

where there is injury, pardon;

where there is doubt, faith;

where there is despair, hope;

where there is darkness, light;

and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek

to be consoled as to console;

to be understood, as to understand;

to be loved, as to love;

for it is in giving that we receive,

it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,

and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

 

Francis of Assisi

Prayer to Ruled by God’s Gentleness

The character of God's eternal

and just law is this:

that those refusing to be ruled by God's

gentleness will have the

misfortune of being ruled by their own selves;

that whoever voluntarily throws off the gentle yoke

and light burden of charity

will be obliged to carry

the unbearable burden of their own will.

 

Bernard of Clairvaux

Holy Spirit Prayer

(English translation below)

 

Holy Spirit,

bestowing life unto life,

moving in All.

You are the root

of all creatures,

washing away all impurity,

scouring guilt,

and anointing wounds.

Thus you are luminous

and praiseworthy,

Life, awakening,

and re-awakening

all that is.

 

Hildegarde of Bingen - 12 century

Merciful Redeemer, Friend and Brother

Thanks be to thee, my Lord Jesus Christ,

For all the benefits thou hast won for me,

For all the pains and insults thou hast borne for me.

O most merciful Redeemer, Friend, and Brother,

May I know thee more clearly,

Love thee more dearly,

And follow thee more nearly:

For ever and ever.

 

Prayer of St Richard of Chichester - 1197-1253

Make us worthy, Lord, to serve our fellow men

throughout the world who live and die in poverty and hunger.

Give them through our hands this day their daily bread,

and by our understanding love, give peace and joy.

Lord, Teach Me to Be Generous

Lord, teach me to be generous,

teach me to serve you as I should,

to give and not to count the cost,

to fight and not to heed the wounds,

to toil and not to seek for rest,

to labour and ask not for reward,

save that of knowing that I do your most holy will.

 

Ignatius Loyola - 16th Century

Let Nothing Disturb You

Let nothing disturb you;

Let nothing dismay you.

All things pass;

God never changes.

Patience attains

All it strives for.

The one who has God

Finds that nothing is lacking.

God alone suffices.

 

Teresa of Avila (1515 - 1582)
