Lord, in times of pride I parade my success,
or fame or fortune for all the world to see.
Then in times of illness
I see how weak I really am, and how vain.
Let me rather walk humbly with You.
Let me trust in You,
rather than in my own strength,
let me step out with confidence in You,
for Your weakness is greater than all my strength.
Lord, I thank You, for I know
You will never abandon me.
- Columban Fr. Patrick Sayles
