Dear Jesus, I get so caught up in my doings
that I am scarcely aware of Your presence.
Yet when things go wrong or when I just seem
to be on a perpetual treadmill, I finally seek You out.
You are patient, gentle and kind.
You let me know that You are with me.
In turn, You invite me to get out of myself
and to broaden my awareness of others' needs.
Help me to show real care.
— By a Columban Missionary
