Prayer for Today

As S. Mary Magdalen broke her vase of spices, the heart empties itself utterly of all attachment to transitory things, it is left open wide for God alone. (from Meditations of a Hermit by Charles De Foucauld)

Break open my heart
open it wide to your mercy,
love and grace.

Come into my heart
and reign over it
that in that place might be your home.

O God, open wide my soul,
that I may empty myself to You
and be filled with the
Holy Spirit.
