Anselm: from grace to holiness

Thursday, April 21, 2016
    Feast of Anselm, Abbot of Le Bec, Archbishop of Canterbury, Teacher, 1109
    [Jesus:] “And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.”
    —Luke 11:9-10 (ESV)
    O Lord our God, grant us grace to desire Thee with our whole heart; that, so desiring, we may seek, and seeking find Thee; and so finding Thee may love Thee; and loving Thee, may hate those sins from which Thou hast redeemed us.
    ... St. Anselm (1033-1109), included in The New Christian Year, Charles Williams, London: Oxford University Press, 1958, p. 44 (see the book)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I found You, seeking me.
