Our Father which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done, on earth
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
forever and ever.

The Infinite Goodness of God

I had a few days ago an insight which consoled me very much.
It was during my thanksgiving, when I make
a few reflections upon the goodness of God, and
how should one not think of this at such a time, of that
infinite goodness, uncreated goodness, the source of all goodness.

I saw written as in letters of gold this word, “Goodness”
which I repeated for a long time with indescribable sweetness.
I beheld it, I say, written upon all creatures, animate and
inanimate,
rational or not, all bore this name goodness. …
I understood then that all these creatures have of goodness and
all the services and assistance that we receive from each of them
is a benefit which we owe to the goodness of God
who has communicated to them something of his infinite goodness
so that we may meet it in everything and everywhere.
– St. Thérèse Couderc, 1865

Ask, and it shall be given you;
Seek, and you shall find;
Knock, and it shall be opened to you.
For whoever asks, receives;
And he who seeks, finds;
And to him who knocks, the door is opened.

Matthew 7:7, The Words of Christ

Day by day,
Let me see the grace
Day by day,
Let me see the way

Day by day,
Let me see the beauty
Let me hear the music
day by day
Let me see the way

Day by day
let me see the goodness
Let me feel the love
Inspire me to kindness
Day by day,
let me see the way

Let me see the grace
Let me see the way

Day by Day – Hans van Rostenberghe
