Good morning Saint John’s students, faculty, and staff. Let us pause in our day to pray. As we go about our days, we often fail to recognize how our actions build-up or degrade our character, and how they impact other people. Today we pray for the grace to be truly humble, that we may be able to live as true witnesses to Christ.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
Grant unto us, O Lord, the gift of modesty.
When we speak, teach us to give our opinion quietly and sincerely.
When we do well in work or play,
Give us a sense of proportion,
That we be neither unduly elated nor foolishly self-deprecatory.
Help us in success to realize what we owe to you and to the efforts of others.
In failure, help us to avoid dejection.
And in all ways to be simple and natural,
Quiet in the manner and lowly in thought.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Thank you and have an excellent day!
