Give Me Special Grace

                      'O my loving God!  Most Blessed Trinity!
                      Give me special grace to keep You
                      always in the sanctuary of my soul.
                      Wound the very core of my heart
                      with the dart of Your love.
                      Inebriate my spirit with a great personal love for You...
                      Unite me so intimately to Yourself
                      that I will not think or say or do anything
                      without first consulting You.'

                      (from Sheltering the Divine Outcast, compiled by A Religious, The Peter Reilly Co, Philadelphia, 1952, p. 217)
