Lord, just as a flower can radiate its precious beauty,
and cast its fragrance everywhere, so I ask You
to cast the sweet fragrance of Your presence over me.
Surround me with Your love,
fill me with Your healing balm,
enfold me with Your peace,
comfort me with Your presence.
May your fragrance linger in the stillness of my soul,
May Your healing love renew my very being.
— By Columban Fr. Patrick Sayles
