Our Parish Patron, Thomas More, was a man of letters and penned much in the way of books and prayers.
Here is his short, but profound prayer for a holy heart:
Lord, grant me a holy heart
that sees what is always fine and pure
and is not frightened at the sight of sin
but creates order wherever it goes.
Grant me a heart that knows nothing
of boredom, weeping and sighing.
Let me not be too concerned with the bothersome thing
I call “myself.”
Lord, give me a sense of humor
and I will find happiness in life
and profit for others.
