Dearest Lord, teach me to be generous.
Teach me to serve Thee as Thou deservest;
To give and not to count the cost;
To fight and not to heed the wounds;
To toil and not to seek for rest;
To labor and not to seek reward, save that of
Knowing that I do Thy Will, O God.
St Ignatius of Loyola
from Life of St Ignatius of Loyola, by Fr Genelli, S J, (pg 1)
My past, O Lord, to Thy Mercy,
My present to Thy Love,
My future to Thy Providence.
St Padre Pio
