United to God’s Will

Oh my gosh.. the Holy Spirit is really on a roll with St. Alphonsus de Ligouri!  I was just  sorting books that someone gave me and I found a little pamphlet called “Uniformity With God’s Will” by St. Alphonsus de Ligouri.  This seems to be where Our Lord wants us to be in regards to His Will versus our will.  😀  don’t be afraid, it’s all really good, God’s plans are truly remarkable!

So, if you can take a look at this site and read this when you are able to pray and meditate (especially good in the morning).

1. Excellence of this Virtue.
Perfection is founded entirely on the love of God: “Charity is the bond of per-fection;” and perfect love of God means the complete union of our will with God’s: “The principal effect of love is so to unite the wills of those who love each other as to make them will the same things.” It follows then, that the more one unites his will with the divine will, the greater will be his love of God. Mortifi-cation, meditation, receiving Holy Communion, acts of fraternal charity are all certainly pleasing to God — but only when they are in accordance with his will. When they do not accord with God’s will, he not only finds no pleasure in them, but he even rejects them utterly and punishes them.

Saint Alphonsus de Liguori – Only One Thing is Necessary

A Prayer of Saint Alphonsus Liguori

0 my God, help me to remember – That time is short, eternity is long.  What good is all the greatness of this world at the hour of death?  To love You, my God, and save my soul is the one thing necessary.  Without You, there is no peace, no joy.  My God, I need fear nothing but sin.  For to lose You, my God, is to lose all.      

0 my God, help me to remember – That to gain all I must leave all, That in loving You I have all good things: the infinite riches of Christ and His Church, the motherly protection of Mary, peace beyond understanding, joy unspeakable!

Eternal Father, your Son has promised that whatever we ask in His Name will be given to us. In His Name I pray: give me a burning faith, a joyful hope, a holy love for Jesus Christ. Give me the grace of perseverance in doing Your will in all things. Do with me what You will. I repent of having offended You. Grant, O Lord, that I may love You always and never let me be separated from You.  O my God and my All, make me a saint!  AMEN
