"To give and not to count the cost..."
"Lord, teach me to be generous; teach me to serve you as you deserve, to give and not to count the cost, to fight and not to heed the wounds, to toil and not to seek for rest, to labor and not to seek reward, save that of knowing that I do your will. Amen."
The Prayer for Generosity of St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus, captures the spirit of loving service and selflessness that is at the core of our call to be followers of Christ.
Here is a new musical setting of that prayer. May it enrich your prayer this weekend.
