Stay with me, and then I shall begin to shine as you shine, so to shine as to be a light to others. The light, O Jesus, will be all from you. It will be you who shines through me upon others. Give light to them as well as to me; light them with me, through me. Make me preach you without preaching — not by words, but by my example and by the sympathetic influence, of what I do — by my visible resemblance to Your saints, and the evident fulness of the love which my heart bears to you.
Prayer by Bl. John Henry Newman
