A Beautiful Prayer

Lord, I bring the poverty of my soul to be transformed by your beauty;
the wildness of my passions to be tamed by your love;
the stubbornness of my will to be conformed by your commandments;
and the yearnings of my heart to be renewed by your grace;
both now and forever.
Amen.

Catherine of Genoa (1447 – 1510)
