A Prayer by Saint Benedict for Seekers of Faith

Gracious and Holy Father,

give us the wisdom to discover You,

the intelligence to understand You,

the diligence to seek after You,

the patience to wait for You,

eyes to behold You,

a heart to meditate upon You,

and a life to proclaim You,

through the power of the Spirit of Jesus, our Lord. Amen

Saints have prayed prayers,

Prayers hanging over Time,

Still being answered:

“God protect Your Church.”

“God spare Your People.”

“God forgive Sin.”

“God make holy.”

“God preserve and enlighten.”

Prayers that never end

Prayers forever answered.

INTENTION PLACED IN THE HEART OF GOD

INTENTION PLACED IN THE HEART OF GOD

All the people of my life,
I place in Your Life.
Living Savior,
One with the Father,
The Spirit,
And lowly me,
Look on my memory,
And on my forgetfulness.
Search my corridors and halls.
Find all those faces and voices
Of my past, present and forgotten.
Forgive them,
As You’ve forgiven me.
Draw them,
As You have drawn me.
Prepare a heavenly paradise,
In which each may dwell.
Life is short;
Memories fleeting.
You alone endure.
Embracing all,
In Your Eternity.

Merciful Faith and Hope

Merciful Faith and Hope

Mercy takes our yesterdays,
And bathes them
In the Blood flowing from Your Sacred Heart.

Hope envisions our tomorrows,
Born in the Water flowing from Your pierced Side.

Faith makes me confident in Your bountiful care, charity and constancy.

The Indwelling

The Indwelling

Trinity, mine,
Reign in me.

On Your Altar
I place my poor heart.

I lay before You,
All my yesterdays,
All my tomorrows.

My life becomes one holy Now.
Open to Your Mercy,
Confident in Your care.
