The Glory of God

+JMJ+

 copyright Gloria In Excelsis Deo

Gloria Patri et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto, Sicute erat in principio, 
et nunc, et sempter, et in saecula saeculorum.
Amen.

Such a simple prayer.......yet so complete.  In times when I'm happy, sad, or just feeling "blagh," I like to turn to this prayer.  

The glory of God is something I love to think about (though I don't do it enough).  It's why this blog is called Gloria In Excelsis Deo.  

If I'm struggling with something, it seems so right just to bow my head and to remind myself of God's glory and that, as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end, Amen.  

It's very comforting.  When I turn my thoughts to the glory of God, it's like I get a mental picture in my head of the grand scheme of things......that of God's Immense Glory that overtakes everything created.  It's an awe-striking mental picture.

We are so blessed with our Faith.  It guides, strengthens, overcomes, comforts, and helps us grow.
We can never say "we are so blessed" too many times.    

All for the glory of God!

    1. Hi Nicole! And thank you :)

      Here's the English translation: "Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be world without end, Amen."

      Have a wonderful day and God bless!

      In Jesus,

      Emma
