Divine help

Jesus, I feel within me
a great desire to please you
but, at the same time,
I feel totally incapable of doing this
without your special light and help,
which I can expect only from you.
Accomplish your will within me –

even in spite of me.

St. Claude de la Colombière, S.J., 1641-1682, Jesuit priest from France, ascetic,  missionary to England

Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in him, and he will act.
He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,
and your justice as the noonday.
