How do I overcome jealousy?

I’m feeling jealous and prideful. It makes me very unhappy, is there a specific prayer i can say to overcome these sinful feeling?


I suggest that you pray (a Hail Mary or five decades) for the person who has what you want. And then ask the Lord to help you to want Him more than what you are jealous about.

Do this daily!
