The following reflection was read at a Remembrance Mass yesterday in Coláiste Choilm, Ballincollig for the late John Rea and former staff member. While this prayer is quite old, its richness and depth of meaning makes it as relevant today as it ever was.
Lord, I give you my hands to do your work. I give you my feet to go your way. I give you my eyes to see as you do. I give you my tongue to speak your words. I give you my mind that you may think in me. I give you my spirit that you may pray in me. Above all I give you my heart that you may love in me. I give you my whole self that you may grow in me so that it is you Lord Jesus who live and work and pray in me. Amen
