O My Jesus . . .

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins,
save us from the fires of Hell.
Lead all souls to heaven,
especially those most in need of Thy mercy.

I was taught very forcefully about 1956 or 57 that the state of another person's soul before God is none of my business.

So for whom am I praying? Lots of people, probably, none of whom I know, need to know, or want to know.

There's only one person I know who is in needs of God's mercy, and that's me.

Sobering thought, that.


  1. Oh Mon Jésus

    Oh Mon Jésus
    Pardonnez-nous nos péchés
    Préservez-nous du feu de l'Enfer
    Conduisez toutes les âmes au Ciel
    Spécialement celles qui ont le plus besoin de
    Votre Miséricorde

    1. Thank you very much for that!
      I often misspell "sins" and it comes out "fish." Someday I'll learn....
