"HOW GREAT THOU ART"

 
"O My people, what have I done to you, or how have I wearied you? Answer Me!" —Micah 6:3
 

There's no excuse for us to love the Lord with anything less than everything. He has loved us with an everlasting love (Jer 31:3). He has set us free from slavery (Mi 6:4). He alone has been perfectly faithful to us. He even died on the cross for us. What more can He do? Greater love than this no man has (Jn 15:13).

The Lord loves us more than we love ourselves. He is willing to forgive us before we ask for forgiveness. He loves us so much that it's impossible for Him to love us more. He loves us so much it's beyond our power to comprehend. Yet He does not limit His divine love because of our limited capacity to appreciate it.

Therefore, "let us praise Him the more, since we cannot fathom Him, for greater is He than all His works; Awful indeed is the Lord's majesty, and wonderful is His power. Lift up your voices to glorify the Lord, though He is still beyond your power to praise; Extol Him with renewed strength, and weary not, though you cannot reach the end: For who can see Him and describe Him? or who can praise Him as He is?" (Sir 43:29-33) "More than this we need not add; let the last word be, He is all in all!" (Sir 43:28)

 
Prayer: "Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all my being, bless His holy name" (Ps 103:1). "My being proclaims the greatness of the Lord, my spirit finds joy in God my Savior" (Lk 1:46-47).
Promise: "She came from the farthest corner of the earth to listen to the wisdom of Solomon; but you have a greater than Solomon here." —Mt 12:42
Praise: St. Bridget and her daughter Catherine are both canonized saints. They ministered together for many years.
