Prayer of Faith
Lord, I believe: I wish to believe in Thee. Lord, let my faith be full and unreserved, and let it penetrate
my thought, my way of judging Divine things and human things. Lord, let my faith be joyful and give peace and gladness
to my spirit, and dispose it for prayer with God and conversation with people, so that the inner bliss of its fortunate possession
may shine forth in sacred and secular conversation. Lord, let my faith be humble and not presume to be based on the
experience of my thoughts and of my feeling; but let it surrender to the testimony of the Holy Spirit, and not have any better
guarantee than in docility to Tradition and to the authority of the magisterium of the Holy Church.
