I am living in a wicked world,
surrounded with dangers which lead to perdition.
I am like a child,
not knowing how to walk on,
or follow the true way.
to Thy servant an understanding
heart to discern between good and evil.
Make me understand how great an evil sin is,
and how great a good it is to love Thee above all things.
Give me a great hatred of sin and make me love Thee
most ardently to the end of my life.
- Father Michael Mueller
