Taste and See: Grace at work

DSC09685.jpg

May the working of your power, O Lord,
increase in us, we pray,
so that, renewed by these heavenly Sacraments,
we may be prepared by your gift
for receiving what they promise.

Prayer after Communion for the 31st Sunday in Ordinary Time

The gift we need, to bring us to the fullness of life, comes to us from God.

Our condition however, as human beings constrained by sin, is such that we always need  also God’s help to be ready and able to receive the gift he offers, and in order for us to cooperate with it.

How helpless, in truth we are. How blessed that God is with us and for us.
