“I am asking Our Lord that we may die to ourselves in order to rise with him. May he be the joy of your heart, the end and soul of your actions, and your glory in heaven.” (CCD 3:616)
– St. Vincent de Paul
– I must die to my selfish, sinful desires and attachments if I want to rise with you, Jesus. Help me to rid myself of all that keeps me from union with you, who are the real joy of my heart.
