St. Peter Canisius, Doctor, on Peace, Love and Perseverance



Prescription of the Day

St. Peter Canisius wrote beautiful prayers drawn from his spiritual experiences.  We share an excerpt of a prayer of his to Jesus below.

So, after daring to approach your most loving heart and to plunge my thirst in it, I received a promise from you of a garment made of three parts: these were to cover my soul in its nakedness, and to belong especially to my religious profession.  They were peace, love and perseverance.  Protected by this garment of salvation, I was confident that I would lack nothing but all would succeed and give you glory.”

Three amazing gifts he received from the Lord:

  • peace
  • love
  • perseverance
