This morning I picked up Hearts on Fire: Praying with Jesuits, one of my favorite prayer books, and came across this prayer by Pedro Arrupe, SJ. It seemed exactly the right prayer for today—a busy day in the middle of the week, lots of work to do, people to talk to, deadlines to meet.
Grant me, O Lord, to see everything now with new eyes,
to discern and test the spirits
that help me read the signs of the times,
to relish the things that are yours, and to communicate them to others.
Give me the clarity of understanding that you gave Ignatius.
