Prayer for divine mercy

Eternal Father, I offer you

the body and the blood, soul and divinity
of your dearly beloved Son,
our Lord, Jesus Christ,
in atonement for our sins
and those of the whole world.
For the sake of His sorrowful passion
have mercy on us and on the whole world.

Holy God,
holy Mighty One,
holy Immortal One,
have mercy on us and on the whole world.

— Divine Mercy Chaplet

Identify yourself!

 

You cannot tell me who I am, and I cannot tell you who you are. If you do not know your own identity, who is going to identify you? Others can give you a name or a number, but they can never tell you who you really are. That is something you yourself can only discover from within.

— Thomas Merton, No Man Is an Island

Can’t do it in the dark

 

If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not live according to the truth; but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.

1 John 1:6-7, Ignatius Bible
