Dear Jesus,

Help us to spread your fragrance everywhere we go.

Flood our souls with your spirit and life.

Penetrate and possess our whole being so utterly that our lives may be
a radiance of yours.

Shine through us and be so in us that every soul we come in contact
with may feel your presence in our soul.

Let them look up and see no longer us
But only Jesus.

Stay with us

And then we shall begin to shine as you shine,

So to shine as to be light to others.

The light, O Jesus, will be all from you.

None of it will be ours.

It will be your shining on others through us.

Let us thus praise you in the way you love best

By shining on those around us.

Let us preach without preaching,

Not by words but by our example,

By the catching force

The sympathetic influence of what we do

The evident fullness of the love our hearts bear to you.


Mother Teresa, Words to Love By…

“Jesus, please let my heart bear fullness to love you.  I can’t do
this alone, nor do I want to.  I want to love you more than anything,
more than myself, and I desire for people to know you because I am in
love with you and it simly oozes out of me.  Please Jesus show me your
heart towowards me and your children.”
