Daily Prayer: Lord, our piety stems from within
Twenty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time
Lord, our piety stems from within us, anchored to our hearts and dependent upon the purity of our souls. Nothing from the outside may destroy us Lord, only the sickness of sin infecting us might jeopardize our souls. Form in us strong hearts Lord, to repudiate evil at every turn, so that all we might do reflects your ultimate glory. Amen.
