Daily Prayer of Mother Teresa 
Dear Jesus, help me to spread Your fragrance everywhere I go.  Flood my soul with Your spirit and love.  Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly that all my life may only be a radiance of You.  Shine through me and be so in me that every should I come in contact with may feel Your presence in my soul.  Let them look up and see no longer me but only Jesus.  Stay with me and then I shall begin to shine as You shine, so to shine as to be a light to others.
