Dear Jesus,

Help me to spread Thy fragrance everywhere I go.SacredHeartImage
Flood my soul with Thy spirit and life.
Penetrate and posses my whole being so utterly,
that all my life may only be a radiance of Thine.
Shine through me, and be so in me, that every soul I come in contact with may feel Thy presence in my soul. Let them look up and see not longer me but only Jesus. Stay with me, and then I shall begin to shine as Thou shinest,
so to shine as to be a light to others; the light, O Jesus, will be all from Thee; none of it will be mine; it will be Thou shining on others through me. Let me praise Thee in the way Thou dost love best by shining on those around me. Let me preach Thee without preaching, not by words by by my example, by catching force of the sympathetic influence of what I do, the evident fullness of the love my heart bears to Thee.


This prayer is said daily by the Sisters of Charity. It is said to be Bl. Mother Teresa’s favourite prayer.

Here is some more information about Blessed John Henry Newman.
