O God, I need you to teach me day by day,
according to each day’s opportunities and needs.
My ears are dull, so that I cannot hear your voice.
My eyes are dim, so that I cannot see your tokens.
You alone can quicken my hearing,
and purge my sight,
and cleanse and renew my heart.
Teach me to sit at your feet,
and to hear your word. Amen.
— Bl. John Henry Cardinal Newman
