Sister Mary Benedict’s Prayer (from the 1945 movie “The Bells of St Mary’s”)

Sister Mary Benedict has fallen ill and has been ordered to give up oversight of the school which has come to mean so much for her. This is her prayer at the end of the film as she prepares to leave:

“Dear Lord, remove all bitterness from my heart. Please help me to see Thy holy will in all things. Help me. Please. Please help me.”

A good prayer.
