Our Morning Offering – 12 August
Prayer of Saint Jane de Chantal (1572-1641)
O Holy Mother of the children of God!
When shall I rest in your immortal arms?
Our souls should be wholly consumed by this desire.
But I will restrain myself and peacefully await the hour
which the divine Saviour has destined for me,
to overwhelm me with that bliss.
In the meantime let us have only one desire,
to please Him by doing His holy will in all things.
What God wishes for us, let it be done:
we are His for time and eternity. Amen
