Our Morning Offering – 10 September
Give me, good Lord a full faith
By St Thomas More
Give me, good Lord,
a full faith and a fervent charity,
a love of You, good Lord,
incomparable above the love of myself;
and that I love nothing to Your displeasure
but everything in an order to You.
Take from me, good Lord,
this lukewarm fashion,
or rather key-cold manner of meditation
and this dullness in praying to You.
And give me warmth, delight and life
in thinking about You.
And give me Your grace
to long for Your holy sacraments
and specially to rejoice
in the presence of Your blessed Body,
sweet Saviour Christ,
in the holy Sacrament of the altar,
and duly to thank You
for Your gracious coming.
