"To keep a lamp burning we have to keep putting oil in it" (Bl. Mother Teresa)
"It can be difficult to keep our lamps burning as we face various day to day struggles and experiences. It is in these times that we must recognize the need to "recharge" and to simply offer up all of our cares and our worries. May we find comfort in the Lord's love and the teachings of the Saints. May we always remember that turning to God in prayer and faith can provide us with all we need to keep our lamps burning." (CC)
Give me strength when I grow weary
Give me love when I am lost
Give me saving when I call You
Lord my Saviour keep me near
Give me joy when others call me
Give me strength to do Your will
Give me patience when I’m needed
Lord my Father I need you near.
Give me faith when others doubt You
Give me courage to speak Your name
Give me light when darkness calls me
Lord my God keep me near.
