A Prayer

Read something recently in which the saint exclaimed that being persecuted was not as difficult as it would seem because Christ was bearing most of the cross, while his portion was very small. A saintly attitude indeed!

Lord let me seek thee in Thee
and in others,
let me persevere
like the thief on the gibbet,
whom once in my childishness
I thought: "there is the least of saints!"
though he endured the greatest of suffering
without rebuking his God.
Dismas, Dismas,
pray for us!
