Thomas Aquinas, Prayer for Sunday 10-23-2022

O Ever-blessed Trinity, One God, you have given me bread in my hunger and drink in my thirst. I call to mind all your love and gentleness and compassion, in which you have led me and guided me until now. With all my heart I pray for greater gifts of your grace and more overflowing treasure of your love. Dwell in me more and more, as the Lord of the harvest and the vintage, that I may wash my robe in wine and my clothing in the blood of the grape. Give to me, as you only can give, the blessings of heaven above, and the blessings of the deep that lie beneath. In the morning let me rise with you in faithfulness, that in the evening I may rest safely with you in love and joy and peace. O God, my soul rests in you.

Amen.
