Prayer: Joseph Cardinal Bernardin

Grant us, Lord, the gift of modesty. When we speak, teach us to give our opinion quietly and sincerely. Help us in success to realize what we owe to you and to the efforts of others, in failure to avoid dejection, and in all ways to be simple and natural, quiet in manner and lowly in thought, through Christ our Lord.

Prayer: Roger of Taize

A simple prayer, like a soft sighing, like a child’s prayer, keeps us alert. Has not God revealed to those who are little, to Christ’s poor, what the powerful of this world have so much trouble understanding.

Prayer: Guigo the Carthusian

By reading the Scriptures and by meditating, Lord, I have read your words and meditated on your person. Over the years, the fire of desire to see you has grown. As I have meditated, my soul has received greater light, and the Scriptures excite my soul more than ever. Give me a single drop of heavenly rain to satisfy my spiritual thirst.

Prayer: Jane Austen

Give us grace, almighty God, to address you with all our hearts, as well as with our lips. You are present everywhere; from you no secrets can be hidden. Teach us to fix our thoughts on you, reverently and with love, so that our prayers are not in vain but are acceptable to you, now and always, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Prayer: Ambrose

When we find ourselves in some grave danger we must not lose courage but firmly trust in God, for where there is the greatest danger, there is also the greatest help from the One who wants to be called our “Help” in times of peace and in times of tribulation.
