Dear Lord, here is a new day you have given me
in which to love You and to help others to love You.
Above all things,
help me to love and accept Your holy will.
Lord Jesus, in giving me this cross of my illness,

I want to bring others also to know You better,
to love You more,
and for this I know that good
and holy priests are necessary;
so I will
offer my cross,
united with Yours,
to the holy priesthood.
Teach me, O Lord, to do Your will,
for You are my God.
Keep me, Lord, as the apple of Your eye;
hide me in the shadow of Your wings.
O Lord, remember not against us the iniquities of the past;
may Your compassion quickly come to us.
