A Prayer for Journalists
I pray Lord that You Strengthen and direct
my work that many will see
and my words that many will listen to
May I be bold to confront evil and injustice:
understanding and compassionate of human weakness;
rejecting alike the half-truth which deceives,
and the slanted word which corrupts.
May the power you have given me through my works
always be used with honesty and courage,
with respect and integrity,
so that when all here has been written, said and done,
I may, unashamed, meet Thee face to face.
St. Francis de Sales
Patron Saint of Writers and Journalists
