A wonderful prayer


In today’s readings in Magnificat I found a wonderful prayer by John of Fecamp (d. 1078):

“Almighty God, so rich in mercy that because of the great love you bore us, you gave us new life with Christ when we were dead in our sins; now that we have been saved by your grace do not let us prove ourselves unworthy of such mercy. Rouse up your might, I pray, and strengthen the foundations you have laid in us. Finish the work you have begun, os that we may be found worthy to attain the fullness of your gracious gift. Grant that by your Holy Spirit we may always be able to recognize what you have odne for us and with fitting honor and praise worship this great mystery of your love that was manifested in the flesh, vindicated in the Spirit, seen by angels, proclaimed among the nations, bleieved in throughout the world, taken up to heaven in glory.”


Beautiful Bonnie, exactly what I needed to know with Pentecost Sunday fast approaching.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
