God of All Things,
have given us the power
to build a roaring world of mechanical and electronic
marvels, giving us
previously undreamed-of power.
along the way we have inadvertently created modern monsters
as well . . .
me to keep my bearings and resist
as necessary the noise, distractions,
blandishments and temptations
of the "contemporary" world
in which I live.
me appreciate and utilize all
the new inventive, scientific, electronic, digital technologies
only insofar as they make my life better, holier, and
in Your Divine image.
While I am surrounded by the deafening din, and the
gaudy sights and intrusions
of the material environment, let me not lose sight of
the spiritual world.
Give me quiet interior peace.
Give me magisterial silence of soul.
Hold my hand, Jesus.
Lead me always forward toward the good.
Let me not be distracted along the way.
Make me Yours, Jesus.
Keep me Yours, always.
is my one greatest wish,
and my most fervent prayer.
