Fr. Hurtado’s prayer for a joyful soul

Next Prayer

Lord, there are so many who suffer
In today’s world
And so few who know
To forget their sorrow.

I want to be Light
Reflecting your Lamp
And good leaven
To raise up souls.

I thank you Lord
Because you have risen from the dead.
And you put to death in my soul
The anguish of sin.

If you ask my life,
I want to give it to you content.
If you don’t want me to die,
I want to live smiling.

I want to laugh,
I want to dream,
I want to give to everyone
The joy of loving.
