Deliver me, O Jesus.

“Deliver me, O Jesus:
 From the desire of being esteemed
 From the desire of being loved
 From the desire of being honored
 From the desire of being praised
 From the desire of being preferred to others
 From the desire of being consulted
 From the desire of being approved
 From the desire of being popular.
 Deliver me, O Jesus:
 From the fear of being humiliated
 From the fear of being despised
 From the fear of being rebuked
 From the fear of being slandered
 From the fear of being forgotten
 From the fear of being wronged
 From the fear of being treated unfairly
 From the fear of being suspected

 And, Jesus, grant me the grace
 To desire that others might be more loved than I
 That others might be more esteemed than I
 That in the opinion of the world, others may increase and I decrease
 That others may be chosen and I set aside
 That others may be preferred to me in everything
 That others may become holier than I, provided that I, too, become as holy as I can.”

 (Mother Theresa, A Simple Path)

We shall win.

"The decree has gone forth that the kingdoms of this world shall become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ and that He shall reign whose right it is from the River to the ends of the earth. We shall win. It is only a question of time. I believe that this Movement shall inaugurate the final conquest of our Lord Jesus Christ."
- General Catherine Booth
