Pope Francis' Preferred Prayer for Good Humour

Pope Francis appealed to officials to take care of their spiritual life (CNS)
CNS, meantime, reports the Vatican confirms that the prayer below is the one recited by the Pope:


Prayer for Good Humor

Grant me, O Lord, good digestion,
and also something to digest.
Grant me a healthy body, and
the necessary good humor to maintain it.
Grant me a simple soul that knows to
treasure all that is good and that
doesn’t frighten easily at the sight of evil,
but rather finds the means to put things
back in their place.
Give me a soul that knows not boredom,
grumblings, sighs and laments,
nor excess of stress, because of that
obstructing thing called “I.”
Grant me, O Lord, a sense of good humor.
Allow me the grace to be able to take a joke
to discover in life a bit of joy,
and to be able to share it with others.-St. Thomas More, Chancellor ot King Henry VIII
