For God so loved the world, as to give His only begotten Son; that whosoever believeth in Him, may not perish, but may have life everlasting. – Saint John the Apostle

Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque

Are you making no progress in prayer? Then you need only offer God the prayers which the Savior has poured out for us in the sacrament of the altar. Offer God his fervent love in reparation for your sluggishness. In the course of every activity pray as follows: "My God, I do this or I endure that in the heart of your Son and according to his holy counsels. I offer it to you in reparation for anything blameworthy or imperfect in my actions." Continue to do this in every circumstance of life. 

-- Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque


  1. Thank you, Steve, for posting this. It is exactly what I needed to read today. God bless!

  2. I found this to be a particularly moving reflection today. I get into the rut of "perfect prayer", and feel very frustrated by my imperfect efforts, my less-than-stellar days of inaction or poor choices. Thank you for these thoughts, knowing that offering even this to our Savior is a step toward salvation.
