Prayer for God’s Will

gracelinesheader

Lord Jesus, may I know eternitys-gate sorrowing-old-man-atmyself and know Thee. And desire nothing save only Thee. May I hate myself and love Thee. May I do everything for the sake of Thee. May I humble myself and exalt Thee. May I think of nothing except Thee. May I die to myself and live in Thee. May I receive whatever happens as from Thee. May I banish self and follow Thee. And ever desire to follow Thee. May I fly from myself and fly to Thee, That I may deserve to be defended by Thee. May I fear for myself and fear Thee. And be among those who are chosen by Thee. May I distrust myself and trust in Thee. May I be willing to obey on account of Thee. May I cling to nothing but to Thee. May I be poor for the sake of Thee. Look upon me that I may love Thee. Call me that I may see Thee. And ever and ever enjoy Thee.

                                      ~Amen.

                              ~St. Augustine

For Reflection:

I seek the grace to say “Yes” to all that is in this prayer.

Sexuality and Authority in the Catholic b1701 Church Monica Miller  PB 286 pgs Click Here For More Information: INTRODUCTION

Most of the conflict surrounding the status and power of women in the Church is based on a false idea of authority. First of all, authority is nearly always associated with the holding of visible public office. Second, authority has become synonymous with the possession of power over others. If this is authority, then it is largely true that women have been and are deprived of the exercise of authority.
