Words to Live by – from Catholic Tradition

A prayer to recite when receiving your daily Cross (in the Catacombs)

Oh Lord, do with me and mine as Thou pleasest.  I ask and desire only three things:  Thy love, final perseverance, and the grace always to do Thy holy Will.  And if to love Thee thus, I must endure persecution and suffering, I am perfectly satisfied.

Taken from a pre-Vatican II program for making a holy hour
