My God, I am yours for time and eternity.
Teach me to cast myself entirely
into the arms of your loving Providence
with a lively, unlimited confidence in your compassionate,
tender pity.
Grant, O most merciful Redeemer,
That whatever you ordain or permit may be acceptable to me.
Take from my heart all painful anxiety;
let nothing sadden me but sin,
nothing delight me but the hope
of coming to the possession of You
my God and my all,
in your everlasting kingdom.
Amen.

—Suscipe of Catherine McAuley, 1778–1841

On Earth as It Is in Heaven

Our Father which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done, on earth
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
forever and ever.

Thy kingdom come.
Let the reign of divine Truth, Life, and Love
be established in me, and
rule out of me all sin;
and may Thy Word enrich
the affections of all mankind,

and govern them!

Saint Therese, the little flower,
Please pick me,
A rose from the heavenly garden,
And send it to me
With a message of love.
Ask God to grant me
The favor I thee implore
And tell him I will love him

Each day more and more.

—Prayer of Petition to Saint Therese of Lemieux

Turning toward God Every Day

To surrender oneself is something more

than to devote oneself, more than to give oneself,
it is even more than to abandon oneself to God.
To surrender oneself is to die to everything and to self,
to keep it continually turned towards God.
Self-surrender is no longer to seek self-satisfaction in anything
but solely God’s good pleasure.
It should be added that self-surrender is to follow
that complete spirit of detachment
which holds to nothing;
neither to persons nor to things—
The whole thing consists in making a generous act
at the very beginning,
by saying with all the sincerity of your heart:
“My God, I wish to be entirely thine; deign to accept my offering”
—then all is said…

You must always remember that you have surrendered yourself.

—St. Thérèse Couderc

O heavenly Father, you have filled the world with beauty: Open our eyes to behold your gracious hand in all your works; that, rejoicing in your whole creation, we may learn to serve you with gladness; for the sake of him through whom all things were made, your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Ask, and it shall be given you;
Seek, and you shall find;
Knock, and it shall be opened to you.
For whoever asks, receives;
And he who seeks, finds;
And to him who knocks, the door is opened.

Matthew 7:7, The Words of Christ

Blessed are the poor in spirit: 
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are they that mourn: 
for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek: 
for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: 
for they shall be filled.

Blessed are the merciful: 
for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart: 
for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers:

for they will be called the children of God.

The Beatitudes, Matthew 5:3-9

Beloved Lord, Almighty God,
Through the Rays of the Sun,
Through the Waves of the Air,
Through the All Pervading Life in Space;
Purify and Revivify Us
And we pray, heal our bodies, hearts, and souls.
Amen
