Jesus, Help Me…

September 8, 2011

Jesus, help me in my human relationships so that I may always see you in the other person.
Cause me, O blessed Lord, to remember always that you are present to all our words and actions.
May I always listen with respect and speak the truth in charity, and never hurt my neighbor by speaking evil of him or her, when it is better to break the bonds of prejudice and recognize the good, the holy and the beautiful in others.
Your power defend, your wisdom direct, your pity correct me,
and make me so live here among people,
that I may be fit for the conversation of angels hereafter.

Amen.
