Matters of dependence

A tremendous lover of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament,
St Ignatius of Loyola used to say:

“Pray like everything
depends on God;
work like everything
depends on you.”
Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

St Ignatius of Loyola
Spain ~ 1491-1556 
Founder of Society of Jesus (Jesuits)
Jesuit motto:  Ad Majoriem Dei Gloriam 
"to the greater glory of God"
Recalling - FEAST DAY - July 31*
*Since today is SUNDAY, it is the fundamental feast to celebrate.
In the words of a fourth century homily,
the "the Lord's Day" is "the lord of days".


"Some of us would be surprised if they knew what God
could make of them if, in the decisive moments of their lives,
they gave ear to the voice of grace!"  - St Ignatius of Loyola

Ste Ignatius of Loyola, ora pro nobis!
