Jesus, help me to spread your fragrance wherever I am.Finally, Mother was asked what advice she would give to people for Advent?. My advice to the people is love to pray. Prayer enlarges the heart until it is capable of containing God’s gift of himself. Ask and seek, and your heart will grow big enough to receive him as your own.
Fill my heart with your spirit and your life.
Penetrate my being and take such hold of me that my life becomes a radiation of your own life.
Give me your light through me and remain in me in such a way that every soul I come into contact with can feel your presence in me.
May people not see me, but see you in me.
Remain in me, so that I shine with your light,
And may others be illuminated by my light.
All light will come from you, Oh Jesus.
Not even the smallest ray of light will be mine.
You will illuminate others through me. Amen.
