So they may draw closer to You

O God, I am bound to You
Body and soul
By a faith that never dies

In the neighbor
Sharing the hope of eternal life

My heart you have set aflame
With the love of God for all.
Amen

Wednesday, November 2

O Lord, through my baptism,
I was born to the cross.

In the knowledge and faith
Of its redemptive power,
For I join with You also
In the Eucharist.
I live and serve in hope.
Amen

Thursday, November 3

Though burdens weigh me down at times,
Though I may wander and become lost,
Though my spirit may be restless,
I will find my rest in You, O Lord.

In my prayers and in my hopes,
In my works and in my neighbor,
My eyes upon the kingdom,
I will find my rest in You.
Amen

Lord, let every moment
Be a moment of conversion.
Help me to see You
In the experiences of the day
And the people I encounter.
Little by little,
Or all at once,
Transform my heart.

Lord Jesus,
Help me to suffer as You did,

Lead us to glory, O Lord!

O Jesus, my Jesus,
Alone on the cross,
How can I serve You today?
With humble devotion,
With love for the Father,

How can I serve You in love?
By serving my neighbor,
Loved as myself,
For the sake of the Father above.
