Give me only Thy love and Thy grace;

with these I will be rich enough and will desire nothing more.

  • Before doing any of this, pray the Jesus prayer: 

    Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on us.

BENEDICTION:

May love be stronger in us than the fear of the pain that comes with caring.
 
May we learn to make good out of what we're given Rather than only make sense of it. 
 
May we find freedom in limitation- to fully give ourselves to what we can do rather than worry about what we cannot. 
 
May we have the courage to believe that everything we do matters. 
 
Amen.
