Sunday Quotation


As I thought about a quotation to post for this week, I ran across a rather long one in my journal, copied from a Saint-of-the-Day e-mail from American Catholic written by an early Christian saint. I chose it because I appreciated the perspective of prayer expressed here:

"God accepts our desires as though they were a great value. He longs ardently for us to desire and love him. He accepts our petitions for benefits as though we were doing him a favor. His joy in giving is greater than ours in receiving. So let us not be apathetic on our asking, nor set too narrow bounds to our requests; nor ask for frivolous things unworthy of God's greatness."
--Saint Gregory of Nazianzen (329-390)

I wish you all a holy Lord's Day and a blessed and wonderful week ahead!

Prayerfully yours,
