Saint Theresa's Prayer

God deliver us from saying 'We are not angels', or 'We are not saint', 
whenever we commit some imperfection. We may not be; but
what a good thing it is for us to reflect that we can be if we will only try
and if God gives us His hand! (St Theresa, The Way of Perfection).

It is a wonderful prayer we should remember and repeat very often. We do not accept our weaknesses and too often think about ourselves that we are not worthy to be special. But actually we are. We are chosen by God to be holy and it is within reach for us. Let us give thanks God for His vocation and that  we are able with His grace to overcome our imperfection.
