Prayer to St. Marguerite d'Youville
Dear St. Marguerite d’Youville,
You had a listening ear, a compassionate heart:
your life, truly a living Gospel, inspires our actions.
Lend us your eyes that we may discover
the most urgent needs of our times.
Lend us your ears that we may hear
cries of pain and distress.
Lend us your hands that we may dress wounds
and alleviate pain.
But more especially, lend us your heart,
that we may manifest God’s tenderness
through our boundless love.
Beseech the Father to give us
as He did to you, a dauntless faith,
an invincible hope,
a universal charity.
St. Marguerite d’Youville,
Pray for us.
