Unqualified Praise

Here is an excerpt from the Song of the Three Young Men, part of the Old Testament Book of Daniel in some versions.

Glory to you, Lord God of our fathers; *

you are worthy of praise; glory to you.

Glory to you for the radiance of your holy Name; *

we will praise you and highly exalt you forever.

Glory to you in the splendor of your temple; *

on the throne of your majesty, glory to you.

Glory to you, seated between the Cherubim; *

we will praise you and highly exalt you forever.

Glory to you, beholding the depths; *

in the high vault of heaven, glory to you.

Glory to you, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; *

we will praise you and highly exalt you forever.

There is a lot of Old Testament imagery here, but what comes through strongly is the unqualified praise for God. There is no description too great for him.

What a contrast with our daily life! Famous people in political life, sports, entertainment, even in the Church, fail, disappoint, even get entangled in scandal. God alone is worthy of unlimited praise forever. If you want to follow someone, pick God. Here is some good news: God wants to live with you forever! Join us and find out more. Our Sunday liturgy begins at 10:00 am.
