Through him then let us continually offer
a sacrifice of praise to God...
Teach me, dear Lord, to bear my crosses with faith, and hope, and love.
With faith -- to believe they come from Thy hand, to cry out when I see one in the distance: "It is the Lord!"
With hope -- because if I follow Thee to Calvary now, I shall follow Thee into Thy Kingdom by and by.
With love -- that will make me glad to bear something for Thee who hast borne so much for me.
~Mother Mary Loyola, Hail, Full of Grace
Thank You, my sweet Jesus, for the crosses You will give me today.
Help me to make of each one a sacrifice of praise to You.
