The Contemplative Writer is back with weekly prayer every Tuesday. These prayers are drawn from the annals of church history–contemplatives, mystics, and other ladies and guys of faith who enrich us with their conversations with God.

When I pray a single of these prayers, I really feel element of the fantastic cloud of witnesses that tends to make up the church eternal. This year, I’ve created an work to coordinate our weekly prayers with the significant Feast Days of the year. I hope you will join us every Tuesday.

All-Saints

This week’s prayer comes to us from St. Gregory the Good (ca. 540 – 604), Pope, Physician of the Church, and Church Father. St. Gregory’s Feast Day is these days (September three).

O Superior Jesu, Word of the Father and brightness of his glory, whom angels wish to behold: teach me to do thy will that, guided by thy spirit, I could come to that blessed city of everlasting day, exactly where are all a single in heart and thoughts, exactly where there is security and eternal peace, happiness and delight, exactly where thou livest with the Father and the Holy Spirit, a single God, planet devoid of finish. Amen.
