Go to fullsize image

I was deeply moved by God

God kept pouring his reassurance over me all the way through Mass.

He gave me the encouragment to take courage and walk with him.

There were  2 thing God was telling me

1. He loves me abundantly bby giving me his full support

2. That ive goit to take the bull by the horn and start testing my true vocation. 

There were two chants that capture my feeling toward the mass on Munady Thursday.

Nos Autem

INTROIT ¤ Gal. 6. 14
     Nos autem gloriari oportet in Cruce Domini nostri Iesu Christi: in quo est salus, vita, et resurrectio nostra: per quem salus, vita, et resurrectio nostra: per quem salvati, et liberati sumus. — Deus misereatur nostri, et benedicat nobis: illuminet vultum suum super nos, et misereatur nostri. V.: Gloria Patri . . . — Nos autem gloriari . . .      But it behooves us to glory in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ: in whom is our salvation, life, and resurrection: by whom we are saved, and delivered. — (Ps. 66. 2). May God have mercy on us and bless us: may He cause the light of His countenance to shine upon us, and may He have mercy on us. V.: Glory be to the Father . . . — But it behooves us to glory . . .

1. Ubi caritas est vera, Deus ibi est.
Congregavit nos in unum Christi amor.
Exsultemus, et in ipso iucundemur.
Timeamus, et amemus Deum vivum.
Et ex corde diligamus nos sincero.
1. Wherever we find true charity, God is there.
Christ's love has gathered us into one:
let us rejoice, and take delight in him;
let us fear, and let us love the living God;
And with a sincere heart let us commit to him.
2. Ubi caritas est vera, Deus ibi est.
Simul ergo cum in unum congregamur:
Ne nos mente dividamur, caveamus.
Cessent iurgia maligna, cessent lites.
Et in medio nostri sit Christus Deus.
2. Wherever we find true charity, God is there.
So let us gather as one:
yet beware, lest our minds be divided:
may our malicious quarrels cease, may we end our disputes,
that Christ our God may remain in our midst.
3. Ubi caritas est vera, Deus ibi est.
Simul quoque cum beatis videamus,
Glorianter vultum tuum, Christe Deus:
Gaudium quod est immensum, atque probum,
Saecula per infinita saeculorum.
3. Wherever we find true charity, God is there.
May we, along with the blessed,
see your glorious face, O Christ our God:
joy that is boundless and good,
through all the infinite ages

It showed me Gods love never fails it it us who do. Yet God does not have a harsh outside  but a lovley care nature but we need to work together.   

Thanks be to God.

  1. Another “just a technical note” …

    The English side of the Ubi Caritas has become lost as the table goes beyond the border … the only way to read it is to copy the table and past it into any text processor … even Notepad …

    All blessings!
