during your life you extended your help
to the unfortunate and poor around you.
Help me in my present need
Give me the insight to recognize
the presence of Jesus in the sufferings and troubles of others.
Let not my urgent need for help
cause me to think only of myself.
Following your example,
uniting my prayers
and sufferings with Jesus on the Cross,
may I be transformed into a person of love and compassion.
pray for me.
