The Fragrance of Christ


Jesus, I Will Not Be Moved

The Lord is my help, I will not be moved. The Lord, is my strength, I will not be moved.

The Lord is my hope, I will not be moved. The Lord provides for His creatures, I will not be moved. The Lord loves His creatures, I will not be moved. The Lord blesses His creatures, I will not be moved. Lord, I am your warrior, I will not be moved. Lord, I will enter your Glory I will not be moved. Amen.

Prayer for Healthy Eating

God Almighty, help me to eat in a way that helps my body. I want to make healthy choices but I need your grace. I can't do this without you. Give me the grace to make healthy choices. Jesus, I need You. Jesus, I trust You. Amen.

The Mercy of God

O Lord, from this moment forward I will seek to humble myself completely and search for You more diligently. For You, Lord Jesus, treat me with far greater mercy than I deserve, indeed far above what I dare to ask or even hope for. Blessed are You, O Lord, in all your works, for even though I am unworthy of any good from You, You continually offer me Your kindness and Your mercy, which you extend even to those who are ungrateful or who have turned away from You. Dear Lord, please restore me to Your merciful love so that I may become grateful, humble, and devoted to You. For You are my help, my salvation, and the strength of my body and soul. ~Favorite Prayers from the Imitation of Christ

The Fragrance of Christ

Help me to spread your fragrance everywhere I go - let me preach you without preaching, not by words but by my example - by the catching force, the sympathetic influence of what I do, the evident fullness of the love my heart bears to you. - John Henry Newman

Dear God

Dear God, please reveal to us your sublime beauty that is everywhere, everywhere, everywhere, so that we will never again feel frightened. My divine love, my love, please let us touch your face. ~St. Francis Assisi

I See Your Face

When I feel the sunshine, I experience God’s warmth. When I feel the cool breeze, I experience God’s presence. When I behold a garden, I witness God’s beauty. When I see God’s animals, I see God’s vulnerable face. Lord, may today I feel your warmth, experience your presence, witness Your beauty and help your vulnerable creatures. Amen.
