Adoration

altarFor me, to adore God is above all to express to Him my deep desire to meet Him through an interior and exterior attitude of humility. It is a way of living a one-on-one with Him, of entering into a relationship and dialoguing with the living which makes me know his love and his greatness. It is to discover in Him his magnificence, to discover through Him, my brothers and sisters in the Church. It is to leave him the first place and to commune with his great Love...

Let us read attentively this beautiful prayer that Father Louis-Marie Parent, O.M.I. wrote. It illustrates well the face of this God who is, who was and who is to come.
Louise Fleury, Volunteer of God

 

O Lord
,
You are the greatness of all that is great.
You are the beauty of all that is beautiful.
You are the goodness of all that is good.
You are above all that is good.

You dwell in all truth,
you give life to all the living,
you animate all movement,
you are the energy that resists, that activates, that energizes.
Before you, the sun is clothed in your light,
the moon is dazzled by your shadow,
the rivers clap their hands,
the mountains jump for joy,
the streams sing their hymns,
the stars twinkle like eyes on the face of the heavens.
In you, everything is filled with wonder...
I bow, I prostrate myself, I adore. Amen

Prayer: Adoration, taken from the book In Intimacy with Jesus page 174.
Father Louis-Marie Parent, O.M.I.
