O Blessed Jesus,
Give me stillness of soul in Thee,
Let Thy mighty calmness rule in me.
Rule me,O Thou King of gentleness,King of Peace.
Give me control,great power of self-control,
Control over my thoughts,words,actions.
from all irritability,
want of meekness,
want of gentleness
Dear Lord deliver me.
By Thine own deep patience,
give me patience,
stillness of soul in Thee.
Make me in this and in all,
More and more like Thee.
(St. John of the Cross)
I am so excited (and a bit nervous) to be going on my first silent weekend retreat that starts tonight! I’ve always found an excuse why I couldn’t go, but not this time.
Our lives are filled with so much noise and distraction, it will be nice to “Be still and know that He is God.” I have about a thousand things to do before I leave tonight, and God-willing nothing will keep me from going this time! (Even though I almost crashed into a deer last night!) I will be praying for all of you. Thank you for being a part of this page!
