Catholic Prayer: Prayer to God for His Goodness to Us Sinners

    Feasts

Description:

This prayer was written by St. Gregory Nazianzen; bishop, confessor and doctor of the Church.

Prayer:

Lord, from you flows true and continual kindness. You had cast us off and justly so, but in your mercy you forgave us. You were at odds with us, and you reconciled us. You had set a curse on us, and you blessed us. You had banished us from the garden, and you called us back again. You took away the fig leaves that had been an unsuitable garment, and you clothed us in a cloak of great value. You flung wide the prison gates, and you gave the condemned a pardon. You sprinkled clean water on us, and you washed away the dirt.
