by Blessed Mother Teresa
O God, we believe you are here. We adore you
and love you with our whole heart and soul
because you are most worthy of all our love.
We desire to love you as the blessed do in heaven…
Flood our souls with your spirit and life.
Penetrate and possess our whole being utterly,
that our lives may only be a radiance of yours.
Shine through us, and be so in us,
that every soul we come in contact with
may feel your presence in our soul.
Let them look up and see no longer us, but only Jesus!
The fruit of silence is prayer.
The fruit of prayer is faith.
The fruit of faith is love.
The fruit of love is service.
The fruit of service is peace.
