This month I want to share with you a prayer I have been praying for most of my life. I hope it will bless you as much as it has blessed me.
PRAYER OF ST. BENEDICT
Gracious and Holy Father,
Grant us the intellect to understand You,
reason to discern You,
diligence to seek You,
wisdom to find You,
a spirit to know You,
a heart to meditate upon You.
May our ears hear You,
may our eyes behold You
and may our tongue proclaim You.
Give us grace that our way of life may be pleasing to You,
that we may have the patience to wait for You
and the perseverance to look for You.
Grant us a holy death,
Your holy presence,
a blessed resurrection and life everlasting.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
The Rt. Rev. J. Alberto Morales, OSB
