Weekly Prayer – January 28, 2018
Jesus, 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 everyone 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 share 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. Amen.
~ Bl. John Henry Cardinal Newman
Weekly Prayer – January 7, 2018
by your heavenly star,
you guided those who were wise
to your beloved Son, Jesus Christ.
May your blessing come to rest us.
Make us wise with your wisdom,
energized by your love,
and ready to proclaim your Son as our savior.
May your Word made flesh
make his home among us. Amen.
