Girding the Loins: Omnia Pro Deo

Been studying Schnackenburg's Jesus in the Gospels. That and recommitting ever more intently, to live the Gospel Rule, to live in Christ in the Order of the Present Moment, to exist all for God.

From Psalm 73:

What else have I in heaven but you? 
Apart from you I want nothing on earth.
My body and my heart faint for joy; 
God is my possession for ever.

Nothing less to consider than this.


Beautiful truth in Office of Readings this morning:

We pray that by the love which Christ had for us when he braved the cross, we may receive the grace of the Spirit and be crucified to the world, and the world to us.  

The death Christ died, he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives, he lives to God.  

Let us imitate our Lord's death, and also live a new life. Strengthened with the gift of his love, let us die to sin and live for God.

From a treatise by Saint Fulgentius of Ruspe, bishop.
