A Prayer for the "Catching Force"
Nov 12, 2008 by Howard Baker | 0 Comments
Dear Jesus, help us to spread Your fragrance everywhere we go.
Flood our souls with Your spirit and life.
Penetrate and possess our whole being so utterly that our
lives may only be a radiance of Yours.
Shine through us, and be so in us that every soul we
come in contact with may feel your presence in our souls...
Let us preach You without preaching, not by words
but by our example, by the catching force, the
sympathetic influence of what we do, the evident
fullness of the love our hearts bear to You.
--John Henry Newman's Prayer which was prayed daily by Mother Teresa and her workers
