    I agree, something about the new American Catholic versions just doesn't cut it, it's like something's missing or left out. Restores peace to ones soul when recited in times of crisis, grief or turmoil......Thus endeth the Sermon. Amen.

    Love this prayer gives one peace and strength when reciting it. I don't care for the new american version. Guess its because the original one feels right. When reading it before bed make for a safe and restful night. God be with all of us in all we do.
