or when I’m sharp, unloving to those I love

God is always leading us in every step of our journey. But there are times that we do not recognize His presence because of situations that separate us from Him. This is what I remember every time I find it difficult to understand the things happening in my life. There are questions in my mind, and no answers can give me satisfaction.

and through us,
make the Heart of Jesus,
together with your rule,
triumphant in every heart and home.

all the means of salvation.

a spirit to know you,
a heart to meditate upon you,
ears to hear you,
eyes to see you,
a tongue to proclaim you,
a way of life pleasing to you,
patience to wait for you
