Deign, O Jesus, Pelican of heaven, me, a sinner, in Thy Blood to lave, to a single drop of which is given all the world from all its sin to save. ~ from the Latin hymn "Adoro Te Devote" by St. Thomas Aquinas
There is no greater love
than to lay down one's life for one's friends.
For New Year's gifts, Lord,
make our love bear fruit worthy of You.
