Saint John Eudes ~ August 19

1601-1680
Jean Eudes Champion of the
Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary,
improvement of Seminaries,
penitent women, and missions.
Father of mercies and God of all consolation, You gave us the loving Heart of your own beloved Son, because of the boundless love by which You have loved us, which no tongue can describe. May we render You a love that is perfect with hearts made one with His. Grant, we pray, that our hearts may be brought to perfect unity: each heart with the other and all hearts with the Heart of Jesus….and may the rightful yearnings of our hearts find fulfillment through Him: Our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen
Collection from Saint John Eudes’ Mass, Gaudeamus, 1668
The Servant’s Prayer
Good Morning Dear Lord,
Thank you for the precious gift
You have given me this morning
-my life- to live fully and joyfully
one more day! Please give me the
grace to be kind and patient today
that I may see beyond worldly
appearances, so that I may
encounter your holy presence
in each person I meet.
Close my ears dear Father to all
gossip. Seal my lips to all
judgments and criticisms that my
words will only bless all about
me and warm the coldest heart.
Let my actions be so just, my
feelings be so tender, my conduct
be so humble and true to
your will that throughout this
day I will be a reflection of
your heavenly mercy and love.
Amen
