O Lord, show your mercy to me and gladden my heart. I am like the man on the way to Jericho who was overtaken by robbers, wounded and left for dead.
O Good Samaritan, come to my aid. I am like the sheep that went astray.
O Good Shepherd, seek me out and bring me home in accord with your will. Let me dwell in your house all the days of my life and praise you forever and ever.
(St. Jerome, Priest and Doctor of the Church; Prayer for Mercy)
