The Pope Video 11-2017 – To witness to the Gospel in Asia – November 2017
This month, the Pope asks us to pray for Asia — an enormous continent where people of diverse religions coexist, and where Christians are a minority. Let us listen to their testimony and learn from their openness to others.
“The most striking feature of Asia is the variety of its peoples who are heirs to ancient cultures, religions and traditions.
On this continent, where the Church is a minority, the challenges are intense.
We must promote dialogue among religions and cultures.
Dialogue is an essential part of the mission of the Church in Asia.
Let us pray that Christians in Asia may promote dialogue, peace, and mutual understanding, especially with those of other religions.”

Litany of Humility by Danielle Rose
This beautiful prayer of humility was written by Rafael Cardinal Merry del Val (1865-1930). Adapted and sung by Danielle Rose on her album I Thirst. The original prayer:
O Jesus! meek and humble of heart, Hear me.
From the desire of being esteemed, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the desire of being loved, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the desire of being extolled, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the desire of being honored, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the desire of being praised, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the desire of being preferred to others, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the desire of being consulted, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the desire of being approved, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the fear of being humiliated, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the fear of being despised, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the fear of suffering rebukes, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the fear of being calumniated, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the fear of being forgotten, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the fear of being ridiculed, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the fear of being wronged, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the fear of being suspected, Deliver me, Jesus.
That others may be loved more than I, Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.
That others may be esteemed more than I, Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.
That, in the opinion of the world, others may increase and I may decrease, Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.
That others may be chosen and I set aside, Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.
That others may be praised and I unnoticed, Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.
That others may be preferred to me in everything, Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.
That others may become holier than I, provided that I may become as holy as I should, Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.
