The Scars of My Sins

'O most excellent and all powerful Lord, 
I consider attentively the scars of my sins, 
with which I have been wounded since childhood.  
I weep because time has gone by uselessly.  
My strength is not enough to sustain my weariness, 
because it has been exhausted in vanity.  
Since You are the source of all goodness and mercy, 
I implore You to have pity on me.  
Touch my heart with the hand of Your love, 
because you are the best doctor, 
console my soul, 
because You are the good consoler.'

St. Bridget
