A Lenten Prayer for Good Friday

Jesus, no one knows change better than you. You died on the cross, and three days later you rose from the dead. Forty days later you ascended into heaven and left the world transformed for the rest of time. Help me to transform my soul, to die to sin and death and be reborn in your love a...

A Prayer for Holy Thursday

Jesus, in these last few days leading up to Easter, as I recall your passion and death, let me remember that, above all, I am called to feed your sheep. You have given me a model of how to live; may I strive to be all that you created me for, spreading the love of God and the truth of our Cath...

Slow Me Down, Lord!

Slow me down, Lord!

Ease the pounding of my heart

By the quieting of my mind.

Steady my harried pace

With a vision of the eternal reach of time.

Give me,

Amidst the confusion of my day,

The calmness of the everlasting hills

Break the tensions of my nerves

With the soothing music of the singing streams

That liv...

A Poem by Mother Theresa

This poem was written by Mother Theresa and is engraved on the wall of her home for children in Calcutta.

People are often unreasonable, illogical

And self-centered;

Forgive them anyway

If you are kind, people may

Accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives

Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will w...

Praying the Words of Cardinal Newman

God has created me to do Him some definite service; he has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another. I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons. God has not created me for naught. I shall do good; I shall do His work. I shall be an angel of pe...

Saint Theresa's Prayer

May today there be peace within.

May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.

May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.

May you be content knowing you are a...

A Lenten Prayer for Ash Wednesday

God of goodness and mercy, Hear my prayer as I begin this Lenten journey with you. Let me be honest with myself as I look into my heart and soul, noticing the times I turn away from you. Guide me as I humbly seek to repent and return to your love.

May humility guide my efforts to be reco...
