Smile Meditation for the Second Sunday of The Ordinary

O GOD, you know us to be set in the midst of so many and great dangers, that by reason of the frailty of our nature we cannot always stand upright. Grant to us each strength and protection, as may support us in all dangers and carry us through all temptations. Through Jesus Christ, Your Son, Our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the Unity fo the Holy Spirit, One GOD, now and forever.

Ecclesiasticus 15 15-20

If you choose, you can keep the commandments, and to act faithfully is a matter of your own choice. He has placed before you fire and water, stretch out your hand for whichever you choose. Before each person are life and death, and whicher one chooses will be given. For Great is the wisdom of the Lord, he is mighty in power and sees everything. His eyes on on those who fear him, and he knows every human action. He has not commanded anyone to be wicked, and he has not given anyone permission to sin


there is a wideness in GODs mercy
like the wideness of the sea
there is kindness in his justice
which is more then liberty
there is no place where earths sorrows
are more felt then up in heaven
there is no place where earths failings
have such kindly judgement given

for the love of GOD is borader
then the measure of mans mind
and the heart of the eternal
is most wonderfully kind
but we make his love too narrow
by false limits of our own
and we magnify his strictness
wit a zeal he will not own

there is plentiful redemption
in the blood that has been shed
there is joy for all the members
in the sorrow of the head
there is grace enough for thousands
of new worlds as great as this
there is room for fresh creations
in that upper home of bliss

if our love were but more simple
we should take him at his word
and our lives would be all gladness
in the joy of Christ our Lord


Fierce raged the tempest over the deep
watch did thine anxious servant keep
but thou was wrapped in restful sleep
calm and still

"save, O Lord, we Perish!" was their cry
"O save us in our agony!"
The word above the storm rose high
"Peace, be still"

The wild winds hushed, the angry deep
sank, like a child, to sleep
the mighty billows ceased to leap
at thy will

So when our life is clouded over
and strom winds drift us from the shore
say, lest we sink to rise no more
"peace, be still"

The Angel of the Lord brought tidings to Mary and she conceived by the Holy Spirit. Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee, blessed art thou amoung women, and blessed is thr fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of GOD, pray for us sinners, now, and at the hour of our death. Behold the handmaid of The Lord, be it unto me according to your wod. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt amoung us. Pour your grace into our Hearts O Lord, that as we have known the incarnation of your son, Jesus Christ, by the message of an Angel, so by his cross and passion we may come to share the glory of his resurrection. Through the same, Jesus Christ, Our Lord

Amen


Go in the peace of Christ
Thanks Be To GOD
