Prayer of the day A Prayer to St Gemma Galgani by Pope John Paul II

Prayer to St Gemma Galgani
By Pope John Paul II

O Father, we ask you to establish Your dwelling in those who love you with a heart pure and simple, that through the example and the intercession of St Gemma, we may live the pure Gospel and the mystery of a love crucified, to be the living image of your Son. He who lives and reigns in the unity of the Holy Spirit, for ever and ever. 

St Gemma Galgani pray for us.

I have been trying to pray this pray daily for over three years now. It is one of the prayers I  pray in the early evening. I have read it since I read the book that it comes from.
