Our Morning Offering – 9 January
With great devotion and new depth of feeling,
I hope and beg, O God, that it finally be given to me
to be the servant of Christ the Consoler,
the servant of Christ the Redeemer,
the servant of Christ the Healer,
the Liberator, the Enricher, the Strengthener.
To be able through You to help many–
to console, liberate and give them courage;
to bring them light not only for their spirit
but also for their bodies,
and bring as well other helps to the soul and body
of each and every one of my neighbours.
I ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
-Blessed Peter Faber, S.J., adapted from his Memoriale
