O Lord, give me a good digestion, as well as something to digest.
Give me health of body, as well as the sense to keep it healthy.
Give me a holy soul, O Lord, that keeps its eyes on beauty and purity, so that it will not be afraid on seeing sin.
Give me a soul that knows nothing of boredom, groans, and sighs.
Never let me be overly concerned for this inconstant thing that I call me.
Lord, give me a sense of humor, so that I make take some happiness from this life . . .
. . . and share it with others. Amen.
–St. Thomas More (1478-1535) Statesman, Humanist, and Martyr
