Barbara Scott (sleeping ice skater), Switzerland, 1948
O Loving Jesus, I offer Thee Thy most peaceful repose in the adorable Sacrament of the Altar, and in the hearts of all the just, and I beseech Thee most earnestly that I may rest this night in Thee so that in the morning I may awake with renewed fervour to love and serve Thee. Amen.
My Queen and my Mother, bless me with thy pure and holy hand
~That I may have a good nights rest,
~That I may be shielded from all vain, evil and distracting thoughts,
~That I may wake betimes in the morning and have the grace and energy to rise promptly and continue the work that your divine and beloved Son has entrusted to my feeble hands.
