Jesus, You practiced temperance;
You were the Model of self-restraint,
Never over-indulging in the temporal.
My body being the Temple
of the Lord,
I must treat it with ongoing respect.
Self-abuse destroys the body;
Be it alcohol, drugs, or excess food.
Lord Jesus, bestow fortitude
For my soul
to control my body,
To practice the virtue
Jesus, You are the source of my vigour.
Through You, all is possible!
