Who said it?

"Keep me, O God, from pettiness. Let us be large in thought, word, and deed. Let us be done with faultfinding and self-seeking. May we put away all pretense and meet each other without self-pity. And, O Lord, let us not forget to be kind."

  1. Mary, Queen of Scots prayed this. I found it in CALLED TO BE HOLY by Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan.

    When I read it, I knew immediately that her prayer needs to become my prayer.

  2. It amazes me, all the places where we find inspiration.What we need exactly when we need it,all from the bountiful hands of our God.Thank you .

  3. Wow...an arrow to the heart! Queen Mary, you were well named. Thanks, Denise, as always, for having one of the best blogs around and for challenging me each day!! Blessings, David Wurst
