HOLINESS (MGR GAY)

The holier a soul is,

that is to say,

the more it possesses thee,

O Jesus,

and thou it,

the more it is in Thee,

and You in it,

the more Thou dost accomplish Thy designs,

exercise Thy rights,

and act in its regard as God

and absolute Master,

the more that soul becomes great,

noble,

firm,

expansive,

kindly,

and truly Catholic;

the more winning

and patient it is

to its neighbours;

the more widely and effectively

it succours them.

What a refuge, O Jesus, is in Thy Saints!

(L S 1905)
