This week’s prayer is from Catherine of Genoa (1447-1510), a late medieval mystic.
Lord, I give myself to You as a present.
I don’t otherwise know what to do with
who I am.
So please let me exchange this weak and fragile self
for Your goodness.
I place it in Your hands.
You’re the only one who can hide it in Your love and so rule
Busy me so much with Your kind Self
I’ll have no time or place or inclination for anything or
