Text heard on Sample:

O salutaris Hostia quae coeli pandis ostium.
Bella premunt hostilia; da robur, fer auxilium.

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.

O salutaris Hostia etc.

Living one day at a time and accepting hardship as the way to peace; trusting that he will make all things right if I surrender to his will.

Uni trinoque Domino sit sempiterna gloria:
Qui vitam sine termino, nobis donet in patria.
Amen.

- Latin text: St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-74)
   English text adapted from The Serenity Prayer, attributed to Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971)
