See the humility of God!


"Let everyone be struck with fear,
the whole world tremble, and the heavens exult
when Christ, the Son of the living God,
is present on the altar in the hands of a priest!

O wonderful loftiness and stupendous dignity!
O sublime humility! O humble sublimity!

The Lord of the universe, God and the Son of God,
so humbles Himself
that He hides Himself for our salvation
under an ordinary piece of bread!

See the humility of God, brothers,
and pour out your hearts before Him!
Humble yourselves that you may be exalted by Him!

Hold back nothing of yourselves for yourselves,
that He Who gives Himself totally to you
may receive you totally!"

St Francis of Assisi

"I have been all things unholy. If God can work through me,
He can work through anyone." ~ St Francis of Assisi

St Francis of ASsisi, ora pro nobis!
