Hostias et Preces

tibi Domine

laudis offerimus,

Tu suscipe pro anibus illis, quarum

 hodie memoriam facimus:

fac eas, Domine, de morte transire ad vitam.

Quam olim Abrahae promisisti,

et semini ejus.

 

Self Improvement

 

 

An elderly man tells this story about himself.

When I was young, 

I was great revolutionary. 

My prayer to God was:

"Lord, give me the energy to change the whole world."

 

As I approached middle age, I realized that half of my life was gone and I had
not changed a single soul.

 

So then I changed my prayer and said:

"Lord, give me
the grace to change all the people who come into contact with me... especially
my family and friends, and I'll be satisfied."



Now that I am an old man and my days are numbered, I have begun to see how
foolish I have been. My one prayer now is,

"Lord, give me the grace to change myself."

If I had prayed for that from the start, I would not have wasted most
of my life.


The Lord laughed and said: "Ask to be contented no matter what life brings you."

 

Thanks, my Lord and Friend !

 

 

 

Another great blessing, three months!
