1 Stewardship of Our Gifts Our Unique Role 2014 Pastoral Center 1079 Summit Avenue Saint Paul, MN Tel Fax

2 Prayer of Saint Thomas More O Lord, give us a mind that is humble, quiet, peaceable, patient and charitable, and a taste of your Holy Spirit in all our thoughts, words, and deeds. O Lord, give us a lively faith, a firm hope, a fervent charity, a love of you. Take from us all luke-warmness in meditation and all dullness in prayer. Give us fervor and delight in thinking of you, your grace and your tender compassion toward us. O Lord, give us the grace to work for, the things we pray for. Prayer of Saint Ignatius Loyola Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, and my entire will, all that I have and possess. To you, Lord, I return it. All is yours. Dispose of it wholly according to your will. Give me only your love and your grace. That is enough for me. Amen. Amen
