Prayer through Br Charles

Ch de Foucauld, talking to TouaregsCh de Foucauld, talking to Touaregs

Merciful Father,

Your Son Our Lord Jesus Christ gave to your servant St. Charles of Jesus a hunger for Himself both in the Eucharist and the Gospel, which brought him ever closer to Jesus, His beloved Brother and Lord. It was in the silence of the desert, that Charles of Jesus lived in humility an inclusive love for all people that earned him the title of universal brother. While sharing poverty and the simple life of the nomads of the Sahara he has given us a model of true evangelical self-giving. We ask now, some share in that zealous fire that filled Br Charles, and a hunger for the person of Jesus of Nazareth that so captured his life and love for the poorest of the poor. We ask this through Our Lord Jesus.
