Prayer: Bernadette Soubirous

Christ Jesus, we ask you not that you spare us with affliction, but that you will not abandon us in it. When we encounter affliction, teach us to see you in it as our sole comforter. Let affliction strengthen our faith, fortify our hope, and purify our love. Grant us the grace to see how we can use our affliction to your glory, and to desire no other comforter but you, our Savior, our strengthener, and friend.
