Merciful Father, You have given me
all that I have in this world, even life itself.
In all my daily needs, help me to
remember the needs of others too.
Make me aware of the need to pray to
You not just for myself but for the Church, the Pope,
for the clergy and for people who
suffer any need.
Make me as selfless as Saint John Neumann. Throughout my life,
give me the grace to direct my first thoughts
the service of You and of others. Make my prayer - "Your will be
done" knowing that in Your mercy and love,
will for me is my sanctification. I ask this through Jesus
Christ, Our Lord.
John Neumann's Feast day is January 5th
