Catherine of Genoa: all good is in God

Monday, November 12, 2018
Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean;
    wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
    —Psalm 51:7 (NIV)
    I clearly recognize that all good is in God alone, and that in me, without Divine Grace, there is nothing but deficiency... The one sole thing in myself in which I glory, is that I see in myself nothing in which I can glory.
    ... Catherine of Genoa (1447-1510), in The Life and Sayings of Saint Catherine of Genoa, Alba House, 1964, p. 90 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 51:7; Isa. 64:6; Matt. 15:18-19; 19:17; Mark 7:21-23; Luke 11:13; Rom. 7:18; Eph. 2:1-5; Tit. 3:3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have raised me from death.
