in Quotes & Aphorisms (Prayers)
And, o Lord, give us Faith. Give us Faith in Thee; Faith in our sons; Faith in each other; Faith in our united crusade. Let not the keenness of our spirit ever be dulled. Let not the impacts of temporary events, of temporal matters of but fleeting moment let not these deter us in our unconquerable purpose. With Thy blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy. Help us to conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogancies. Lead us to the saving of our country, and with our sister Nations into a world unity that will spell a sure peace a peace invulnerable to the schemings of unworthy men. And a peace that will let all of men live in freedom, reaping the just rewards of their honest toil.

    Most high, all powerful, all good Lord! All praise is yours, all glory, all honor, and all blessing. To you, alone, Most High, do they belong. No mortal lips are worthy to pronounce your name. Praise be to God.

      I pray thee of thy grace believe me, I did but speak the truth, most dread lord; for I am the meanest among thy subjects, being a pauper born, and 'tis by a sore mischance and accident I am here, albeit I was therein nothing blameful. I am but young to die, and thou canst save me with one little word. Oh speak it, sir!
      from the book "" by Mark Twain

        Hail, queen wisdom! May the Lord save thee with thy sister holy pure simplicity!
        O Lady, holy poverty, may the Lord save thee with thy sister holy humility!
        O Lady, holy charity, may the Lord save thee with thy sister holy obedience!
        O all ye most holy virtues, may the Lord, from whom you proceed and come, save you!
        There is absolutely no man in the whole world who can possess one among you unless he first die.
        He who possesses one and does not offend the others, possesses all; and he who offends one, possesses none and offends all; and every one [of them] confounds vices and sins.
        Holy wisdom confounds Satan and all his wickednesses.
        Pure holy simplicity confounds all the wisdom of this world and the wisdom of the flesh.
        Holy poverty confounds cupidity and avarice and the cares of this world.
        Holy humility confounds pride and all the men of this world and all things that are in the world.
        Holy charity confounds all diabolical and fleshly temptations and all fleshly fears.
        Holy obedience confounds all bodily and fleshly desires and keeps the body mortified to the obedience of the spirit and to the obedience of one's brother and makes a man subject to all the men of this world and not to men alone, but also to all beasts and wild animals, so that they may do with him whatsoever they will, in so far as it may be granted to them from above by the Lord.
