October 27 St. Abraham the Poor

Therefore let us give Him as many thanks as we can (for certainly we can never give Him enough); and in our agony remembering His (with which no other can ever be compared), let us beg Him with all our strength that He may deign to comfort us in our anguish by an insight into His; and when we urgently beseech Him, because of our mental distress, to free us from danger, let us nevertheless follow His own most wholesome example by concluding our prayer with His own addition: “Yet not as I will but as you will.”

-St. Thomas More

 

Prayer for Perseverance

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, living and life-giving fountain of eternal life, infinite treasure of the Divinity, and glowing furnace of love, You are my refuge and my sanctuary. O adorable and glorious Savior, consume my heart with the burning fire that ever inflames Your Heart. Pour down on my soul the graces that flow from Your love. Let my heart be so united with Yours that our wills may be one, and mine may in all things be conformed to Yours. May Your Will be the rule both of my desires and of my actions.

Amen.
