I do not pray;
Keep me, my God, from stain of sin. Just for to-day.
Let me both diligently work
And duly pray;
Let me be kind in word and deed,
Let me be slow to do my will,
Help me to mortify my flesh,
Let me no wrong or idle word
Set thou a seal upon my lips
Let me, in season, Lord be grave,
Let me be faithful to Thy grace,
And if to-day my life
Should ebb away,
Give me Thy Sacraments divine,
Sweet Lord, to-day.
In purgatory's cleansing fires
Brief be my stay;
Oh, bid me, if to-day I die,
Come home to-day.
So for to-morrow and its needs
I do not pray;
But keep me, guide me, love me, Lord, Just for to-day.
lonely wilds by light winged birds Rare seeds have oft' been sown;
And has sprung from gentle words,
Friend of the Sacred Heart. Pray for us.)
EAR Saint Joseph! Living altar
Of the Heart of Love divine,
Of God's treasures, thine the key
That I here may love and serve Him,
And in Heaven behold His face.
THEN we have to reply to any one who has insulted us we should be careful to do it with meekness. A soft answer extinguishes the fire of wrath. If we feel ourselves growing angry, it is better for us to be silent, because we should speak amiss; when we become tranquil, we shall see that all our words were culpable.
MESSAGE from the Sacred Heart!
What may Its message be?
'My child, My child, give Me thy heart-
This is the message Jesus sends
To my poor heart to-day,
And from His throne in heaven He bends
"A message to the Sacred Heart!
This prayer I'll pray while here I pine,
Nor cease, dear Lord, till I am Thine
For ever heart to heart."
I have within my breast at Holy Communion that Sacred Heart that loved me uninterruptedly throughout the three-and-thirty years. I will praise Thee, O Lord, with my whole heart. will bless Thy Name forever.
