my prayer for today….


Jesus, how sweet is the very thought of you!  You fill my heart with joy.  The sweetness of your love surpasses the sweetness of honey.  Nothing sweeter than you can be described; no words can express the joy of your love.  Only those who have tasted your love for themselves can comprehend it.  In your love you listen to all of my prayers, even when my wishes are childish, my words confused, and my thoughts foolish.  And you answer my prayers, not according to my own misdirected desires, which would bring only bitter misery, but according to my real needs, which brings me sweet joy.  Thank you , Jesus, for giving yourself to me.

Bernard of Clairvaux
