O Lord, You are my portion...

The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; 
surely I have a delightful inheritance. - Psalm 16:6

EUCHARIST.bmp (512×521)

"God, in His promises to hear our prayers, 
is desirous to bestow Himself upon us;
if you find anything better than Him, ask it; 
but if you ask anything beneath Him,
you put an affront upon Him, and hurt yourself
by preferring to Him a creature which He framed.

Pray in the spirit and sentiment of love, 
in which the royal prophet said to Him,
'Thou, O Lord, are my portion.'
Let others choose to themselves portions among creatures, 
for my part, You are my portion,
You alone I have chosen for my whole inheritance."

In a letter to Augustine, Pope Gregory the Great wrote:
"He who would climb to a lofty height must go by steps, not leaps."

St Augustine of Canterbury, pray for us!
