PRAYERS OF GENEROSITY

PRAYERS OF GENEROSITY

FROM

YEARNINGS FOR SANCTITY

By Luisa Piccarreta, the Little Daughter of the Divine Will
L_Luisa_Reading-a2At the beginning of her mystical life

Teach me – I will say to You with Saint Ignatius – to be generous unto heroism, to serve unto sacrifice, to give without measuring, to fight without being afraid of the wounds, to consume myself without lamenting.

O Jesus, by your infinite Mercy, make me holy!

O my Love, who will give me enough to repay You and to satisfy You if not Yourself?  O please, reign, You alone, in this heart of mine, so meager.  May I love You alone, O Jesus, and may I love You equally, when your love caresses me and when it scourges me.  May my spirit rest in You alone, O Jesus.  And when the whirlwind of my passions or the breath of your tests put my soul in agitation, even then, let it be, O Jesus, that each beat of my heart be a praise, a thanksgiving, an adoration for your Divine Heart.  Let is be that, any tie being broken, I may once and for all make a generous leap, and immerse myself inside your Crucified Heart, divine center of charity, of zeal, of purity, of annihilation and of most perfect abnegation….

O Jesus, by your infinite Mercy, make me holy!

PRAYER FOR GENEROSITY

(St. Ignatius of Loyola)

St. IngnatiusLORD TEACH ME TO BE GENEROUS

TEACH ME TO SERVE YOU AS YOU DESERVE;

TO GIVE AND TO TO COUNT THE COST,

TO FIGHT AND NOT TO HEED THE WOUNDS,

TO TOIL AND NOT TO SEEK FOR REST,

TO LABOR AND NOT TO ASK FOR REWARD,

SAVE THAT OF KNOWING THAT I DO YOUR WILL.
