St John Gabriel Perboyre
John Gabriel Perboyre, C.M. (French: Jean-Gabriel Perboyre), was a French priest, who served as a missionary in China, where he was killed because of his faith.
He was canonized in 1996 by Pope John Paul II.
His Feast day is the 11th of September
He composed this prayer
O my Divine Saviour,
Transform me into Yourself.
May my hands be the hands of Jesus.
Grant that every faculty of my body
May serve only to glorify You.
Transform my soul and all its powers
So that my memory, will and affection
May be the memory, will and affections
I pray You
To destroy in me
All that is not of You.
Grant that I may live
But in You, by You and for You,
So that I may truly say,
With St. Paul,
“I live – now not I –
But Christ lives in me”.
