Our Morning Offering – 6 November
O Holy Father, Who Dwell in Heaven
By Blessed Columba Marmion
O Holy Father, who dwell in heaven,
we are Your children since You do will
to be called our Father.
May Your Name be hallowed, honoured, glorified!
May Your perfections be praised and exalted
more and more upon the earth!
May we manifest in ourselves, by our works,
the splendour of Your grace!
Extend, then, Your reign –
may Your kingdom ever increase,
this kingdom, which is also that of Your Son,
since You have made Him the head of it.
May Your Son be truly the King of our Souls
and may we testify to His Kingship over us,
by perfect accomplishment of Your Will.
May we, like Him, ever seek to adhere to You,
by fulfilling Your good pleasure,
Your eternal designs for us, so as to be like Jesus
in all things and through Him,
worthy children of Your Love!
