Prayer: The Prayer of a First Jesuit

With great devotion and new depth of feeling,
I hope and beg, O God, that it finally be given me
to be the servant and minister of Christ the consoler,
the minister of Christ the redeemer,
the minister of Christ the healer,
the liberator, the enricher, the strengthener.
To be able through you to help many -- to console, liberate and give them courage;
to bring them light not only for their spirit but also for their bodies,
and bring as well other helps to the soul and body of each and every one of my neighbors.
I ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

- Blessed Peter Faber, S.J., from his Memoriale
