Praying with Occupy Wall Street (Against Greed)
Who chose a life of poverty and obscurity, grant me the grace to keep my heart detached from the transitory things of this world.
Let it be that henceforth, You are my only treasure, for You are infinitely more precious than all others possessions. My heart is too solicitous for the vain and fleeting things of earth.
Make me always mindful of Your warning words: “What does it profit a man if he gain the whole world, but suffer the loss of his own soul?”
Grant me the grace to keep Your holy example always before my eyes, that I may despise the nothingness of this world and make You the object of all my desires and affections.
(See post on Occupy Wall Street)
(This is one of the classic prayers against greed, there are other classic prayers against the other seven deadly sins)
