St. Alcuin: O Lord our God

March 19, 2009
    Feast of Joseph of Nazareth

    Jesus said to them, "Have you never read in the Scriptures: "'The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone; the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes'?
    -- Matthew 21:42 (NIV)

    O Lord our God,
        Who has called us to serve You,
    In the midst of the world's affairs,
        When we stumble, hold us;
    When we fall, lift us up;
        When we are hard pressed with evil, deliver us;
    When we turn from what is good, turn us back;
        And bring us at last to Your glory.
    ... St. Alcuin (c. 735-804)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are delivering us from evil.

I've been receiving CQOD (and telling others about it) for quite a few years as well as including a link to it in the sidebar of my blog.

This day's entry especially spoke to me.

Thank you for providing this devotional!

Dear Kelly,
You were not the only one this spoke to. It touched me, too, and several others. Thanks for letting me know.
May the Lord bless you and perfect you in patience.
