My Saviour!
I cheerfully accept all the painful dispositions
in which it is Thy pleasure to place me.
My wish is in all things to conform myself to Thy holy will.
Whenever I kiss Thy cross, it is to show that I submit perfectly to mine.
Amen.

—St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

Heal the World!

Our children who live on earth,
Holy are each and every one of you.
May good dreams come,
Your way be found,
And heaven and earth rejoice with you.

May you be given
All you need for life
And may you accept our mistakes
As you allow yourself
To make mistakes and grow.

Lead us with imagination
And true integrity,
For yours are the minds, the hearts,
and the souls
To heal the world
Now and forever.

The Prayer Wheel

If you’re hungry, pray. If you’re tired,
Pray to Gandhi and Dorothy Day.
Shakespeare. Sappho. Sojourner Truth.
Pray to the angels and the ghost of your grandfather.
When you walk to your car, to the mailbox,
to the video store, let each step
be a prayer that we all keep our legs,
that we do not blow off anyone else’s legs.
Or crush their skulls.
And if you are riding on a bicycle
or a skateboard, in a wheelchair, each revolution
of the wheels a prayer that as the earth revolves
we will do less harm, less harm, less harm.

Patience is the key.
Patience.
If you learn nothing else from meditation,
You will learn patience.
Patience is essential
For any profound change.

Thank you, Lord, for the privilege of having a new life within,
Thank you, Lord, for Your son, who came to forgive our sins.
Bless this child I have inside,
And give me Your will as my guide.
Give me Your wisdom for this child I will raise,
That he or she will give You honor and praise.
No matter what road this child may take,
Let he or she love You, never to forsake.
To you, Lord, our glory and praises we sing,
For you, Lord, are the Savior of all things.
Amen.
