Succinct Cogitative Homily

May the Lord bless you, and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and may God Himself be gracious unto you. May you be covered by the blood of the Lamb; strengthened, fortified, encouraged, healed and liberated because Christ and the atoning work of the cross has been released into your body by the speech of your mouth and by the power of the Holy Communion. In Jesus’ name, we are free and celebrate it. Hallelujah.

Our blessed Saviour and His Apostles are wholly taken up in doctrines that relate to common life. They call us to renounce the world, and differ in every temper and way of life, from the spirit and the way of the world: to renounce all its goods, to fear none of its evils, to reject its joys, and have no value for its happiness: to be as new-born babes, that are born into a new state of things: to live as pilgrims in spiritual watching, in holy fear, and heavenly aspiring after another life: to take up our daily cross, to deny ourselves, to profess the blessedness of mourning, to seek the blessedness of poverty of spirit: to forsake the pride and vanity of riches, to take no thought for the morrow, to live in the profoundest state of humility, to rejoice in worldly sufferings: to reject the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life: to bear injuries, to forgive and bless our enemies, and to love mankind as God loveth them: to give up our whole hearts and affections to God, and strive to enter through the strait gate into a life of eternal glory.
