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.
I want to share with you all a little prayer. I’m about to start reading this book called the Saint and the Sultan, on the life of our dearly beloved Francis. So,I thought I would share this with you, as I prepare myself to study the life of one of the greatest saints to have ever lived. As I read these words, they are my prayer too. If only we could all be so kindled by the desire for light.
