Our Morning Offering – 26 January – The Memorial of St Polycarp (c 69 – c 155) Martyr and Father of the Church
Great and Glorious God
By St Francis of Assisi (c 1181-1226)
Great and glorious God,
my Lord Jesus Christ!
I implore Thee to enlighten me
and to disperse the darkness of my soul.
Give me true faith, firm hope and perfect charity.
Grant me, O Lord, to know Thee so well
that in all things I may act by Thy Light
and in accordance with Thy holy Will.
