Prayer Before a Crucifix
An adaptation of the earliest recorded prayer of St Francis of Assisi in San Damiano by Br. Michael Daly CJ. 2008
Most High and Glorious God,
Please bring your light to the darkness of my heart and give me true faith in you,
and Perfect love.
Lord Jesus Christ let me by the counsel of your Holy Spirit,
have right feelings and knowledge
so that I may properly undertake the task you have given me.
To show forth the glorious beauty of you my Lord and God.
