Our Morning Offering – 16 September – Jesu, be You my Life!

Our Morning Offering – 16 September – “Month of the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary ”

Jesu, be You my Life!
By Msgr Robert Hugh Benson (1871-1914)

I cannot live alone another hour,
Jesu, be You my Life!
I have not power to strive,
be You my Power
In every strife!
I can do nothing
– hope, nor love, nor fear.
But only fail and fall.
Be You my soul and self,
O Jesu dear.
My God and all!
Amen

We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings.
