Life to all things

In the third Eucharistic Prayer we pray “by the power and working of the Holy Spirit, you give life to all things.”  All, without exception.

You and I can plant and water, but “God gives the increase.”  Notwithstanding, we must do our part or God will not give the increase.

What is our part?  Principally these three:

  • Desire.
  • Prayer.
  • Effort.

Of first importance is Desire.
