Prayer Tip

by Jennifer Creagar, Community Assistance Coordination Director

Do Justice
Love kindness
Walk humbly with God

How else could we ever hope to BE this way without constant, focused, time with God? This beautiful prayer, a favorite of St. Teresa of Calcutta, is a great place to start.

Radiating Christ

(Written by Bl. Cardinal John Henry Newman)

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 souls. 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 a 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 example, by the catching force, the sympathetic influence of what we do, the evident fullness of the love our hearts bear for You.

Amen.
