Lord, grant that I may avoid useless quarrels that tire and wound without achieving results.
Keep me from these angry outbursts that draw attention but leave one uselessly weakened.
But above all, Lord, may I not keep this light for myself, and may all those who come near me return home eager to bathe in your eternal grace.
Beautifully written by Michel Quoist
This expresses the prayer and meditation of my soul for the last several weeks. There is nothing I could say to add to the quintessential assertion this masterpiece encapsulates.
