Prayer for Today

O my divine Savior,
transform me into yourself.
May my hands be the hands of Jesus.
May my tongue be the tongue of Jesus.
Grant that every faculty of my body
may serve only to glorify you.
Above all, transform my soul
and all its powers
so that my memory, will, and affections
may be the memory, will, and affections of Jesus.
I pray to you to destroy in me
all that is not of you.
Grant that I may live
but in you, by you and for you,
so that I may truly say with St. Paul,
"I live now, not I, but Christ lives in me."

- St. John Gabriel Perboyre, CM
