Prayer of the Week

O, crucified Jesus! in whom I live, and without whom I die; mortify in me all sensual desires; inflame my heart with your holy love, that I may no longer esteem the vanities of this world, but place my affections entirely on you.
Let my last breath, when my soul shall leave my body, breathe forth love for you, my God; I entered into life without acknowledging you, let me therefore finish it in loving you; O let the last act of life be love, remembering that God is love.

Richard Allen (1760 – 1831)
