Week 2, Day 2

11 Dec

 

Today I’m thankful for:

-New books (I can’t wait to read them!)

-The Saints in Heaven (our intercessors before God)

-Prayer books like this one  (titled “The Catholic Girl’s Guide)

 

Catholic Girl's Guide

 

I’m thankful for the prayers in this prayer book.  Here is one of my favorites, titled “Jesus, Master, Teach Me.”

 

Teach me, teach me, dearest Jesus,

in thine own sweet loving way,

all the lessons of perfection

I must practice day by day.

 

Teach me Meekness, dearest Jesus,

of Thine own the counterpart,

not in words and actions only,

but the meekness of the heart.

 

Teach Humility, sweet Jesus,

to this poor, proud heart of mine,

which yet wishes, O my Jesus,

to be modeled after Thine.

 

Teach me Fervor, dearest Jesus,

to comply with every grace,

so as never to look backwards,

never slacken in the race.

 

Teach me Poverty, sweet Jesus,

that my heart may never cling,

to whatever its love might sever

from my Savior, Spouse and King.

 

Teach me Chastity, sweet Jesus,

That my every day may see

something added to the likeness

that my soul should bear to Thee.

 

Teach Obedience, dearest Jesus,

such as was They daily food

In Thy toilsome earthly journey

from the cradle to the rood.

 

Teach Thy Heart to me, dear Jesus,

Is my fervent, final prayer,

for all beauties and perfections

are in full perfection there.
