Brother Lawrence: perfect worshiper

Thursday, July 31, 2014
    Commemoration of Ignatius of Loyola, Founder of the Society of Jesus, 1556
    And [the seraphs] were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.”
    —Isaiah 6:3 (NIV)
    The end we ought to propose to ourselves is to become, in this life, the most perfect worshipers of God we can possibly be, as we hope to be through all eternity.
    ... Brother Lawrence (c.1605-1691), The Practice of the Presence of God, New York, Revell, 1895, p. 17 (see the book)
    See also Isa. 6:3; Ps. 27:4; 29:2; 63:1-2; 100:1-4; 103:1-5; Zech. 14:16; Phil. 3:3; 1 Tim. 2:8; Heb. 12:28-29
Quiet time reflection:
    Praise the Lord, O my soul.
