(front) In Memory of Rev. Frederick N. Miller, S.J. Born: February 27, 1893 Ordained June 16, 1926 Died September 30, 1974. (back) Prayer. O my God, let me love Thee With all my soul-intensively! Beyond the bounds of space and time Thy love transcend this love of mine-So in my earnest sincere way Help me love Thee night and day. May every action that I do Proclaim, dear Lord, that I love You-May life, may deeds, may labors all Be spent in answer to Thy call. And when the shades of night do fall, When darkness settles over all- When strength is gone-and victory Is waiting my last call from Thee-Then hear my one and only plea- "Through endless years-eternity! O wondrous God! Let me love Thee!". "Take, O Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, and whole will. Though hast given me all that I am, and all that I possess, I surrender it all to Thee, that Thou mayest dispose of it according to Thy will. Give me only Thy love and Thy grace; with these I will be rich enough, and will have no more to desire." -St. Ignatius
