One does good for souls only by prayer. In all that you do, work only to please God, otherwise you would waste your time and effort. Only one thing is needful: Jesus Christ - Saint John Gabriel Perboyre.

O my Divine Savior, Transform me into Yourself. May my hands be the hands of Jesus. Grant that every faculty of my body may serve only to glorify You. Above all, transform my soul and all its powers. So that my memory, will and affection. May be the memory, will and affections of Jesus. I pray You to destroy in me all that is not of You. Grant that I may live but in You, by You and for You, so that I may truly say, with Saint Paul, “I live – now not I – But Christ lives in me. (Prayer composed by St. John G. Perboyre)
