Our Morning Offering – 22 September – Lord, May Your Kingdom Come into My Heart

Our Morning Offering – 22 September – “Month of the Seven Sorrows of Mary”

Lord, May Your Kingdom Come into My Heart
By Father Jean-Pierre de Caussade (1675-1751)

Lord, may Your Kingdom come into my heart
to sanctify me, nourish me and purify me.
How insignificant is the passing moment,
to the eye without faith!
But how important each moment is,
to the eye enlightened by faith!
How can we deem insignificant anything,
which has been caused by You?
Every moment and every event is guided by You
and so, contains Your infinite greatness.
So, Lord, I glorify You
in everything that happens to me.
In whatever manner You make me live and die,
I am content.
Events please me for their own sake,
regardless of their consequences,
because Your action lies behind them.
Everything is heaven to me
because, all my moments,
manifest Your love.
Amen

  1. Hello, Ana.

    Thank you.

    I am a huge fan of Fr de Caussade. His “Self-abandonment” is my favourite book beside The Bible and The Imitation. I found a tattered, part-missing copy on the road when out cycling when I was young. The title seemed profound and important to me, though I couldn’t grasp its meaning at that stage. I was preoccupied with the fast-flowing flippancies of the age. The book waited in my bookcase till God made me ready to receive it – well over a decade later. All things work to the good for those who love God – and, so often in His unfathomable mercy, even for those who, like the naive unicorns of the old pop song, are busy playing silly games while the flood rises round them. “Your action lies behind them.”

    Blessed be God, in His Mercy and His Providence.

    God bless you.

    Mark.

    1. Hi dear Mark
      It is lovely to hear from you and on such a profound subject.
      Fr Caussade is also one of my great inspirations and lessons.
      And yes, the Divine Providence of our God knows and sees and prepares and understands. The bottom line of all things is ‘the one thing necessary’ God Alone!
      Let us trust and all will be well, all manner of things will be well (Blessed Julian of Norwich).
      Bless you Mark.🙏🤗
