St Peter Chrysologus
Jeremiah 18:1-6. Blessed are those whose help is the God of Jacob – Psalm 145(146):2-6. Matthew 13:47-53.
‘Lord, how willingly would I be taken in your net’
Of myself, I have no value in promoting the coming of your kingdom, but you kindly enable me, if I cooperate with your grace, to gain merits that are truly mine although they are your gift to me. It is mainly because they are yours that I want them – just as we like to have tokens of those we love.
And I do love you, Lord, and desire to grow daily in love of you as I experience your love for me. Be to me, Jesus, a householder and make of me a storehouse of the graces I shall need to be, in union with you, a fisher of men.Email this Print This Page
