Blessed Jesus Christ,
who did call all who carry heavy burdens
to come to you for relief,
refresh us with your presence and power.
Quiet our understandings
and give ease to our hearts
by bringing us close to things that
are infinite and eternal.
Grant that our lives so reflect
your love, mercy and compassion
that we become springs of strength and joy
to all whom we meet and serve.
May it be so.
(Evelyn Underhill - modified)
