Grant me daily the grace of gratitude,
to be thankful for all my many gifts,
and so be freed from artificial needs,
that I might lead a joyful, simple life.

The time of business does not with me differ from the time of prayer, and in the noise and clatter of my kitchen, while several persons are at the same time calling for different things, I possess God in as great tranquility as if I were upon my knees at the blessed sacrament.
