I’m printing this prayer and hanging it on one of my cabinet doors.
A big Thank You to the Kitchen Madonna for posting this prayer.
All right, that came out quite tiny and I’m not sure how to fix the image without blurring it. Big Brother will have to help later. Here’s the text of the prayer:
Lord of all pots and pans and things,
Since I’ve no time to be a great saint by doing lovely things,
Or watching late with Thee,
Or dreaming in the dawnlight,
Or storming heaven’s gates,
Make me a saint by getting meals,
And washing up the plates.
Warm all the kitchen with Thy Love,
And light it with Thy peace;
Forgive me all my worrying,
And make my grumbling cease.
Thou who didst love to give men food,
In room, or by the sea,
Accept the service that I do—I do it unto Thee.”
– St. Teresa of Avila
