strive to serve, reach for heaven

Lord, teach me to be generous. Teach me to serve you as you deserve; to give and not count the cost; to fight and not to heed the wounds; to toil and not to seek for rest; to labor and not to ask for reward.

—Prayer of Saint Ignatius of Loyola

-from Lent with Saint Teresa of Calcutta
