Our Morning Offering – 12 August – Monday of the Nineteenth week in Ordinary Time, Year C and the Memorial of Blessed Karl Marie Leisner (1915–1945) Priest, Martyr
Thank You, Jesus
By Cardinal Nicholas Cusa (1401-1464)
Thank You, Jesus,
for bringing me this far.
In Your light, I see the light of my life.
Your teaching is brief and to the point,
You persuade us to trust in God,
You command us to love one another.
You promise everything,
to those who obey Your teaching,
You ask nothing too hard for a believer,
nothing a lover can refuse.
Your promises to Your disciples are true,
nothing but the truth.
Even more, You promise us Yourself,
the perfection of all
that can be made perfect.
