THE HAPPINESS OF THOSE WHOSE GOD HAS BECOME THEIR FATHER

WHO CAN COMPLAIN?

Who can complain, and of what, since we can say to God: “Our Father!” David sang: “Blessed is the people whose Lord is God.”

What, then, is the happiness of those whose God has become their Father. My God! My God! It is not too much that, in order to say fittingly this adorable word, and to pronounce worthily this dear invocation, we should receive in our hearts “this Spirit of sanctity and love” who is the living conclusion and consummation of the mystery of Thy Paternity and of the Filiation which proceeds from it.

– Msgr. Gay in Laverty & Sons (eds), 1905
