Uniformity with God's Will - St. Alphonsus de Liguori

I just finished reading Uniformity with God's Will by St. Alphonsus de Liguori.

While this book is chock full of advice and essential guidance for aligning our lives to the Will of God, the following two paragraphs were particularly enlightening for me.

"... we should be diligent in striving to become perfect, so that tepidity and laziness may not serve as excuses for some to say: “God must help me; I can do only so much for myself.” Nevertheless, when we do fall into some fault, we should not lose our peace of soul and union with the will of God, which permits our fall; nor should we lose our courage. Let us rise at once from this fall, penitently humbling ourselves and by seeking greater help from God, let us continue to march resolutely on the highway of the spiritual life ..." (page 19)

"... Above all, let us bend all our energies to serve God in the way he wishes. ..." (from the conclusion on page 21)



Communion Prayer

O Mary my Mother, I beg of thee to intercede for me.

I place myself and all my prayers, works, needs, wants, desires and intentions at thy feet.

I beg of thee to place me and them at the feet of Our Lord Jesus Christ, thy Son, Our God, as an offering of  my life to Him and as a submission of my will to His most Holy Divine Will.

For I know that coming from thee, He will look favourably upon even such an offering.

Then my dearest Mother, I beg of thee, please place them in His most holy and venerable hands.

For I know that coming from thy hands, He will have the utmost care of them and make haste to grant my petitions for love of thee.

Then dear Mother, I beg of thee, place me in the wound in Our Lord's side, as close to, if not inside, His most Sacred Heart.

For it is only in His Heart, the fount of His Love, that shall I be able to dwell in safety and security.

Amen

Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.
