God’s Church

I was touched by the prayer for this past week in the Divine Hours: “Let your continual mercy, O Lord, cleanse and defend your Church; and, because it cannot continue in safety without your help, protect and govern it always by your goodness; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever…. But sometimes the best remedy for “ecclesiological fatigue” is praying and resting in the reality that the Church is HIS Church.

I was touched by the prayer for this past week in the Divine Hours:

“Let your continual mercy, O Lord, cleanse and defend your Church; and, because it cannot continue in safety without your help, protect and govern it always by your goodness; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.”

It’s always a great reminder to pray the truth that the Church is God’s Church. That truth doesn’t dismiss our responsibility to try and be his people in the best way possible. But sometimes the best remedy for “ecclesiological fatigue” is praying and resting in the reality that the Church is HIS Church. He cleanses, defends, protects and governs his people.
