Hostias et Preces
Tu suscipe pro anibus illis, quarum
hodie memoriam facimus:
fac eas, Domine, de morte transire ad vitam.
Quam olim Abrahae promisisti,
et semini ejus.
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."
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:
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."
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 !
