A Prayer for Might Against Greed


Displaying the treasures of Your work, Jesus, You invited me to follow You, To sell my goods, to give to the poor, And to completely submit Myself to You.

Desires for wealth leads to greed, Satisfaction never being reached.

He who seeks no earthly possessions Is free of all avarice aspirations.

Jesus, edify my weak human nature, To resist unnecessary commodities, Those classified as evident luxury.

May I subdue all greedy tendencies!
