To Know Him, To Love Him, To Serve Him – my Christmas wish list

Posted on December 16, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

“Every man naturally desires knowledge;
but what good is knowledge without
fear of God?
Indeed a humble rustic who serves God
is better than a proud intellectual
who neglects his soul
to study the course of the stars.”

Thomas à Kempis***

<< Malachi 3 >>Douay-Rheims Bible

1 Behold I send my angel, and he shall prepare the way before my face. And presently the Lord, whom you seek, and the angel of the testament, whom you desire, shall come to his temple. Behold he cometh, saith the Lord of hosts.

2 And who shall be able to think of the day of his coming? and who shall stand to see him? for he is like a refining fire, and like the fuller’s herb:
3And he shall sit refining and cleansing the silver, and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and shall refine them as gold, and as silver, and they shall offer sacrifices to the Lord in justice.
4 And the sacrifice of Juda and of Jerusalem shall please the Lord, as in the days of old, and in the ancient years.
