Oh LORD, give me the force to withstand the 
cyclopean waves of human hypocrisy and malice.
Make me strong as to endure the suffering inflicted 
by the knives of hatred and inconsideration which 
constantly pierce my heart, so as not to seek revenge
but only affection. And finally, oh LORD, let your divine 
love pass through my bleeding wounds and heal them in 
such a degree as, in the place where insensitive people
wanted to plant the malevolent seed of vice, to flourish
instead the glorious tree of Your virtue!
