Prayer for a Stressful Time

A representation of the Holy Spirit on the ambo in St. Michael's Cathedral. We don't call Him "the Comforter" for nothing.

May He support us all the day long,
till the shades lengthen, 
and the evening comes,
and the busy world is hushed,
and the fever of life is over and our work is done!
Then in His mercy may He give us a safe lodging,
and a holy rest, and peace at the last. 
                - Blessed John Henry Newman

  1. "Misericors et clemens Dominus, patiens et multae miserationis"

    ... et ait illis "venite seorsum in desertum locum et requiescite pusillum," --- erant enim qui veniebant et rediebant multi, et nec manducandi spatium habebant.
