“You make beautiful things” by Gungor

All this pain
I wonder if I'll ever find my way
I wonder if my life could really change, at all
All this earth
Could all that is lost ever be found?
Could a garden come out from this ground, at all?

You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of the dust
You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of us

All around,
Hope is springing up from this old ground
Out of chaos life is being found, in you

The Memorare: Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.

Christ is King–All Times, All Peoples, Come let us Adore! (11/25/18, Christ the King of the Universe–B)

Posted by stagnescatholic in Homilies

A meditation worthy of some time, here is the definition of adoration from The Modern Catholic Dictionary: The act of religion by which God is recognized as alone worthy of supreme honor because he is infinitely perfect, has supreme dominion over humans, and the right to human total dependence on the Creator. It is at once an act of mind and will, expressing itself in appropriate prayers, postures of praise, and acts of reverence and sacrifice. (Etym. Latin ad- , to + orare , to pray; or os , oris, mouth, from the pagan custom of expressing preference for a god by wafting a kiss to the statue: adoratio , worship, veneration.)

In All Circumstances, Give Thanks! 11/22/18–Thanksgiving Day
