A Prayer of Mother Teresa

posted by Mark Herringshaw

Mother Teresa taught her Sisters of Charity this prayer. It is based on a prayer of Cardinal John Henry Newman.

Dear Jesus, help us to spread Your fragrance everywhere we go. Flood our souls with Your spirit and life. Penetrate and possess our whole being so 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. Stay with us and then we shall begin to shine as You shine, so to shine as to be a light to others. The light, O Jesus, will be all from You; none of it will be ours. It will be You, shining on others through us. Let us thus praise You in the way You love best — by shining on those around us. Let us preach You without preaching; not by words but by our example; by the catching force, the sympathetic influence of what we do, the evident fullness of the love our hearts bear to You. Amen.

    I really differ with several individuals in the following, because I discovered this blog article I wasn’t able to stop before I finished, even though it was not just what I had been looking for, was however a good look over although. I will immediately consider your blog feed to keep in contact of near future updates.
