Despise Not Thy Poor Creature

O unfathomable good, that fillest heaven and earth, incline Thyself graciously this day and despise not they poor creature. Lord, if I am not worthy of Thee, yet do I stand in need of Thee. Ah, gentle Lord, art Thou not He Who with one word created heaven and earth? Lord, with one word, canst Thou restore health to my sick soul? O Lord, do unto me according to Thy grace, according to Thy infinite mercy, and not according to my deserts.”

 

Blessed Henry Suso, O.P.
