Fragrance Prayer

Dear Jesus, help us to spread Thy fragrance everywhere we go.
Flood our souls with Thy spirit and life.
Penetrate and possess our whole being so utterly,
that our lives may only be a radiance of Yours.
Shine through us, and be so in us,
that every person we should come in contact with
may feel Your presence in our soul.
Let them look up and see no longer us, but only Jesus.
Stay with us, and then we shall begin to shine as You shine;
so to shine as to be a light to others.


Mother Teresa of Calcutta (1910-1977)
