Our Morning Offering – 24 September – Monday of the Twenty-fifth week in Ordinary Time, Year B
May We Seek Your Face
By Pope Benedict XVI
Lord Jesus, grant us restless hearts,
hearts which seek Your Face.
Keep us from the blindness of heart
which sees only the surface of things.
Give us the simplicity and purity
which allow us to recognise
Your presence in the World.
When we are not able to accomplish great things,
grants us the courage
which is born of humility and goodness.
Impress Your Face on our hearts.
May we encounter You along the way
and show forth Your image
to the world.
