Prayers Ancient and Modern 08/31

O Lord, forasmuch as all my strength is in Thee, grant unto me this grace, that I may allow Thee to do whatsoever Thou wilt; and that my doing may be to lie still in Thy hand, that Thou mayest do with me that thing only which is most pleasing to Thee. Do Thou adorn me with holy virtues, giving unto me humbleness of mind, purity of heart, and all those gifts and graces which Thou knowest to be needful for me, and whatsoever Thou wouldest have to be in me, whether in body or soul; that so I may be able the better to please Thee, the more worthily and faithfully to serve Thee, and the more perfectly to love Thee. I pray, moreover, that Thou wouldest give me grace to arrive at that degree of perfection which Thou wiliest me to reach, and grant unto me the aids and dispositions needful for its attainment—Amen.

Ludovicus Palma.

  • “Experience has taught me that the Shepherd is far more willing to show His sheep the path than the sheep are to follow. He is endlessly merciful, patient, tender, and loving. If we, His stupid and wayward sheep, really want to be led, we will without fail be led. Of that I am sure.” – Elisabeth Elliot
