Prayer of Mother Teresa

Dear Jesus

Help us to spread your frangrance 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 soul.

Let them look up and no longer see us but only Jesus

Stay with us and then we will begin to shine as you shine,

so to shine as to be the light to others.

The light, O Jesus, will be all from you.

None of it will be ours.

It will be your shining on others through us.

Let us praise you in the way you love best

by shining on those around us.

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 you.

Amen
