Praise and honor, glory and thanksgiving are the blessing we give you, Lord God of our fathers, for having escorted us through the shadows of the night and shown us, once more, the light of day!
Remember, my God, the fall of Lucifer, full of pride; keep me safe with the power of your grace. Save me from falling away from you; save me from doubt. Incline my heart to call upon you, present in everything. Glory to You, O God, from age to age!
You brought me into life as if into an enchanted paradise. We have seen the sky like a chalice of deepest blue, and listened to the soothing murmur of the forest and melodious music of the streams. It is a pleasure to be your guest. Glory to You, O God, from age to age!
From birth until now your love has illumined my path and wondrously guided me towards the light of eternity. From birth until now the generous gifts of your providence have been marvelously poured upon me. I thank you with all who have come to know you and call upon your name.
“And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.” (John 1:5)
Christianity was never meant to be merely a topic of academic study. Christianity is communion with the living God. “Taste and see that the Lord is good.” (Psalms of David)
Yes, we must use our heads when learning the Faith. But Christ doesn’t want us to leave him in our heads, he wants us to invite him to sit on the throne of our hearts.
“But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.” (Galatians 6:14)
Another wonderful quote from Abba Poemen of the Egyptian desert.
Christian spirituality is not bout hating the body, it’s about reigning in unbridled appetites.
The only edit I would make to this meme is removing the word “sometimes.”
“O Lord my God, in you I put my trust; save me from all those who persecute me; and deliver me. My defense is of God, who saves the upright in heart.”
