For our Congregation and our superiors.
For the sick, the aged and the lonely; for him who will die first among us.
O God, I thank you for granting me your grace...How gentle, how consoling and how encouraging were the reprimands and counsels I received...Most merciful God, help me to benefit from them... (Confession Notes, Paris, 6/15/1835)
