Spread the fragrance of Jesus

18 Sep

“Dear Jesus, help me to spread your fragrance everywhere I go. Flood my soul with your spirit and life. Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly that all my life may be only a radiance of yours. Shine through me and be so in me that every soul we come into contact with may feel your Presence in my soul. Let them look up and see no longer me, but only Jesus.”

A prayer of John Henry Newman; cited in The Lost Art of Lingering: Mutual Mentoring for Life Transformation, by Rowland Forman
