Our Morning Offering – 5 April

Prayer for Proper Affections Toward God
By St Vincent Ferrer

Good Jesus, let me be penetrated with love
to the very marrow of my bones,
with fear and respect toward Thee;
let me burn with zeal for Thy honour,
so that I may resent terribly all the outrages
committed against Thee, especially those
of which I myself have been guilty.
Grant further, O my God, that I may adore
and acknowledge Thee humbly as my Creator
and that, penetrated with gratitude
for all Thy benefits,
I may never cease to render Thee thanks.
Grant that I may bless Thee in all things,
praise and glorify Thee with a heart full of joy
and gladness, and that,
obeying Thee with docility
in every respect, I may one day,
despite my ingratitude and unworthiness,
be seated at Thy table together with Thy holy angels
and apostles to enjoy ineffable delights. Amen
