Revelation 1:17-18
When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: “Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.


Please pray with us the following prayer that was written by Ambrose, the Bishop of Milan in the fourth century.

Oh Lord, you who are all merciful, take away my sins from me, and enkindle within me the fire of your Holy Spirit.  Take away this heart of stone from me, and give me a heart of flesh and blood, a heart to love and adore you, a heart which may delight in you, love you and please you, for Christ's sake   


Ambrose (339-397) - Bishop of Milan
