It occurs to me that I should get down on my knees and pray a simple prayer attributed to St Bridget of Sweden (d. 1373):Lord, show me your way and make me willing to follow it. Amen. St. Irenaeus, pray for us.Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on themwill be like a wise man who built his house on rock.
