Dependence

“To You, the creator and preserver of all things, be glory and honor forever. Without You, the true sun, I would vanish like a shadow. Without You, the true light, I would be destroyed immediately. Without You, the true being, I would be brought to nothing instantly. To You alone do I owe my being, my living, and my moving. Therefore, I will live only for You and depend only on You for eternity” (Johann Gerhard, Meditations on Divine Mercy trans. by Matthew Harrison [St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 2003], 61.
