Prayer of the Sacrificed Soul
If my life, Lord, is to serve you always,
without receiving anything in return,
may Your Will be done, Jesus,
because the greatest treasure I have is to be able to find You
in the unconditional service to my dear brothers and sisters.
Lord, do not allow me to become blinded by my own miseries.
Help me, Jesus, to step out of myself, every day,
so that I can discover and confirm
that in sacrifice and the constant giving of my life
lies the victorious path to surrender.
Jesus, You are the Sun of our lives.
Dazzle the world with the rays of Your Mercy
and, in this way, I will realize that everything that You did for us
is greater and more immense than all the renunciations
that I must overcome and go through, day after day;
because in the depths of each learning, my Jesus,
there is Your silent Will,
which only aspires to make of me
a kind, loving, helpful and good consciousness.
So I ask You, my Lord, that you do not have me lose
the spiritual richness of each sacrifice and each test.
That I have the grace of being able to imitate you
in compassionate love and in Mercy,
because You are the Lord, without time, without rules or conditions.
You, my Jesus, are everything for us,
and someday I aspire to do the same for others.
Let the path of fraternity
teach me to detach from myself
and, in the face of each new challenge, find
the humble power that comes from You to
break the chains of indifference and mediocrity.
Lord, I ask You and I beg You:
just live within me.
I thank you for keeping this prayer in your hearts!
Who blesses you,
Your Master and Lord, Christ Jesus
