From my early manhood, when I came to know him, the love of God and reverence for him has grown in me, and up to now, by the favour of God, I have kept the faith. (St Patrick’s Confessio)
It is not easy to protect and keep ideals that have been passed on to us. The world makes ever-increasing and changing demands on us but God, makes no demands upon us, other than we love Him.
Is it really too much to ask?
Lord, I love you with my whole heart and above all things. I believe in you – increase my faith.
