Taste and see: the beauty and the challenge

DSC02503 saints.jpg

Grant us, Lord our God,
that we may honour you with all our mind,
and love everyone in truth of heart.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

Collect for the Sunday of the 4th week in Ordinary Time

Sometimes the complaint is that the Collects of the current translation of the Roman Missal are too obscure in their language or complex in their syntax. No such problems this week – only in trying to follow through and do what we pray.

But that’s one reason we pray that sinners might become saints through their imitation of Christ and in love of God and love of neighbour: that we might become saints with the help of God, our first and greatest hope.
