Jesus Prayer –  by Cardinal John Henry Newman (1901-1990)
(Recited daily  after Communion, by Mother Teresa of Calcutta and her Sisters of Charity)

Dear Jesus,

help me to spread your fragrance wherever I go.

Flood my soul with your spirit and life.

Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly

that my life may only be a radiance of yours.

Shine through me and be so in me that every soul I come in contact with

may feel your presence in my soul.

Let them look up and see no longer me, but only Jesus!

Stay with me and then I will begin to shine as you shine,

so to shine as to be a light to others.

The light, O Jesus, will be all from you; none of it will be mine.

It will be you, shining on others through me.

Let me thus praise you in the way which you love best,

by shining on those around me.

Let me preach you without preaching, not by words but by example,

by the catching force, the sympathetic influence of what I do,

the evident fullness of the love my heart bears for you.
