Twenty-Third Day of Easter
When this week is over, let me be more alive than I am here at its beginning.
Help me to put to death today and every day the things that inhibit the development of real life: pride, envy, anger, selfishness, vengeance, fear, despair, hate, and apathy.
Help me to make a little progress today and every day in the things that contribute to real life: grace, mercy, hope, faith, forgiveness, service, and love.
When this week is over, O God, let me be more alive than I have ever been before …
