Learning Christ Teach me, my Lord, to be sweet and gentle In all events of my life— in disappointments, in the thoughtfulness of others, in the insincerity of those I trusted, in the unfaithfulness of those on whom I relied. Let me put myself aside, to think of the happiness of others, to hide my little pains and heartaches, so that I may be the only one to syffer from them. Teach me to profit by the suffering that comes across my path. Let me so use it that it may mellow me, not harden noe embitter me; that it may make me patient, not irritable, that it may make me broad in my forgiveness, not narrow, haughty and overbearing. May no one be less good for having come within my influence. No one less pure, less true, less kind, less noble for having been a fellow-traveler in our journey toward Eternal Life As I go my rounds from one distraction to another, let me whisper from time to time, a word of love to Thee. May my life be lieved in the super-natural, full of power for good, and strong in its purpose of sanctity.
