Today's Lenten Prayer

Let us all become a true and fruitful branch on the vine Jesus, by accepting Him in our lives as it pleases Him to come.

as the Truth - to be told;
as the Life - to be lived;
as the Light - to be lighted;
as the Love - to be loved;
as the Way - to be walked;
as the Joy - to be given;
as the Peace - to be spread;
as the Sacrifice - to be offered;
in our families and within our neighborhood.

This prayer comes from one of my favorite books. A Simple Path by Mother Teresa. I am not sure of the origin of this prayer.
