September 11 is the feast day of St. John Gabriel Perboyre, C.M. Learn more about his life, his vocation and his martyrdom in the presentation below. As you quietly reflect on his story, listen to the video (below the presentation): a pretty song of The Prayer of St. John Gabriel Perboyre. It was posted on YouTube by Fr. Habel Melki Makarius, CM of Indonesia.
O my Divine Savior, transform me into Yourself. May my hands be the hands of Jesus. May my tongue be the tongue of Jesus. Grant that every faculty of my body may serve only to glorify You. Above all, transform my soul and all its powers so that my memory, will and affections may be the memory, will and affections of Jesus. I pray You to destroy in me all that is not of You. Grant that I may live but in You, by You and for You, so that I may truly say, with St. Paul, “I live– now not I– but Christ lives in me.”
