Our Morning Offering – 3 March – Wednesday of the Second Week of Lent
A Lenten Prayer
By St John Henry Newman (1801-1890)
O my God,
suffer me still,
bear with me in spite of my
I improve very slowly
but really, I am moving onto heaven,
or at least, I wish to move.
Only give me Thy grace
meet me with Thy grace,
I will, through Thy grace, do what I can
and Thou shall perfect it for me.
Then shall I have happy days,
in Thy Presence
and in the sight and adoration of
Thy five Sacred Wounds.
