Divine Office

“Whenever we want to ask some favor

of a powerful man,

we do it humbly and respectfully,

for fear of presumption.

  How much more important, then,

to lay our petitions before the

Lord God of all things

 with the utmost humility

and sincere devotion.”

Rule of Saint Benedict - Chapter 20:1-2
