"Grow, Jesus, grow in my heart, my spirit, my imagination, my senses, by your modesty, your purity, your humility, your zeal, your love.
Grow with your grace, your light, your peace. Grow despite my resistance, my pride.
Grow until you reach the fullness of human perfection. Grow as you did at Nazareth before God and before men, for the glory of your Father."
~ St. Bernadette Soubirous ~
