Prayer for Detachment

Sunday, February 12, 2006
Praised be Jesus Christ!! Now and Forever!!
I was sent this prayer from across the Pacific and thought I would pass it on to you. I have this prayer in one of my books and remember seeing it before. I have been asking especially over the past few weeks for the prayers of the various Jesuit Saints for a little mission I am on. I ask them to continue to intercede for me and for all of you also. Since I am asking for prayers right now please say a couple extra for me as I carry out this task before me and if you could pray that I find a good place to make a really good Lenten retreat and for a few special intentions I would appreciate it.
What a wonderful journey God takes us on if we only trust and obey. Our Merciful Lord is so good to me His most unworthy servant and friend.
Omnia Pro Iesu Per Mariam!!

Prayer for Detachment

"I beg of you, my Lord,
to remove anything which separates
me from you, and you from me.

Remove anything that makes me unworthy
of your sight, your control, your reprehension;
of your speech and conversation,
of your benevolence and love.

Cast from me every evil
that stands in the way of my seeing you,
hearing, tasting, savoring, and touching you;
fearing and being mindful of you;
knowing, trusting, loving and possessing you;
being conscious of your presence
and, as far as may be, enjoying you.

This is what I ask for myself
and earnestly desire from you. Amen."
+ Blessed Peter Faber, S.J.
