My Lord and my God
By St Nicholas of Flue (1417-1487)

My Lord and my God,
take from me everything
that distances me from You.
My Lord and my God,
give me everything
that brings me closer to You.
My Lord and my God,
detach me from myself
to give my all to You.
Amen

The above prayer of St Nicholas, is cited in the Catechism of the Catholic Church in paragraph #226.
CCC 226It means making good use of created things – faith in God, the only One, leads us to use everything that is not God, only insofar as it brings us closer to Him and to detach ourselves from it, insofar, as it turns us away from Him.my lord and my god by st nicholas of lue ccc 226 13 march 2020

Thought for the Day – 14 November – My Lord and my God! – St John Henry Newman (1801-1890)

Thought for the Day – 14 November – Thursday of the Thirty Second week in Ordinary Time, Year C, Gospel: Luke 17:20–25

” … For behold,
the kingdom of God,
is in the midst of you.”

Luke 17:21

My Lord and my God!

St John Henry Newman (1801-1890)

“I am slow to master the great Truth, that Christ is, as it were, walking among us and, by His Hand, or eye, or voice bidding me to follow Him.
I do not understand, that His call, is a thing which takes place now.
I think it took place in the Apostles’ days but I do not believe in it, I do not look out for it in my own case.
I have not eyes to see the Lord – far different from the beloved Apostle, who knew Christ, even when the rest of the disciples knew Him not!   When He stood on the shore after His Resurrection and bade them cast the net into the sea, “that disciple whom Jesus loved, said unto Peter, ‘It is the Lord!'” …

O my God, Thou does over-abound in mercy!
To live by faith is my necessity, from my present state of being and from my sin but Thou has pronounced a blessing on it.
Thou has said, that I am more blessed if I believe in Thee, than if I saw Thee –
My Lord and my God!”
