On Monday night (February 22, 2016) of our recent parish mission, Bishop Morneau challenged you to memorize the following poem by Easter. He told you that if you can recite it without a mistake, I’ll give you a dollar. If you make an error, you owe me a quarter. It’s a deal! So start memorizing!!!
Prayer of St. Richard—a disciple’s prayer
Thanks be to Thee, my Lord Jesus Christ,
for all the benefits that Thou has given me,
for all the pains and insults that
Thou hast borne for me.
O most merciful Friend,
Redeemer, and Brother,
May I know Thee more clearly,
Love Thee more dearly,
And follow Thee more nearly.
For ever and ever.
