(On the reception of doctrine)

Good Teacher

Place your yoke upon our shoulders, for this yoke is gentle. May your doctrine, all radiant from your goodness, penetrate deeply within us!

Make us carry your burden, for this burden is light. May your commandments, far from encumbering us, enter into our life as your gentle good will!

Make us fulfill your law, for this law frees us and lifts us up. May we never complain of being chained by your word or your will, for you have wanted no chains but only those of love!

Make us take up your cross, for this cross is lighter, when it is carried by your own shoulders, and embraced by your generosity!

Engrave in us your image, whatever it may cost us, for in your heart every fatigue is changed into rest, and every pain becomes blessedness.

--by Jean Galot, S.J. (1919-2008); translation: RC
