Feast of St. Ignatius

July 31st - Today is the Feast of St. Ignatius ~ 

“A virtue that characterized Saint Ignatius was union with God and prayer; it is from that union, the result of serious prayer, that one draws strength and light.”
(St. Madeleine Sophie Barat, Conference, 1834)

Dearest Lord, Teach Me to be Generous
DEAREST LORD, teach me to be generous. Teach me to serve Thee as Thou deservest; to give, and not to count the cost; to fight and not to heed the wounds; to toil and not to seek for rest; to labor and not to seek reward, save that of knowing that I do Thy Will, O Lord. Amen

The prayer above was taken from the book: SPECIAL DEVOTIONS Compiled for Children of the Sacred Heart  - Revised Edition 1956
