Prayer of Bl Severinus Boethius
(c 475-524) Martyr
“O Father, enable our minds,
to rise to Thy ineffable dwelling place.
Let us find the light
and direct the eyes of our soul to Thee.
Dispel the mists and the opaqueness
of the earthly mass
and shine out with Thy splendour.
Thou art the serene and tranquil abode
of those who persevere
in their goal of seeing Thee.
Thou art, at the same time,
the Beginning, the Vehicle,
the Guide, the Way and the Goal.
“Love binds people too,
in Matrimony’s Sacred Bonds
where chaste lovers are met
and friends cement their trust
How happy is mankind,
if the Love that orders the stars above,
rules, too, in their hearts.”
“One’s virtue is all that one truly has
because it is not imperiled,
by the vicissitudes of fortune.”
“Contemplate the extent
and stability of the heavens
and then, at last, cease to admire
“A man content to go to Heaven, alone …
will never go to heaven!”
Blessed Severinus Boethius (c 475-524)

Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ.

"For the Saints are sent to us by God
as so many sermons.
We do not use them, it is they who move us
and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.”
