LIBERA ME, Domine, Iesu Christe, ab omnibus iniquitatis meis et universis malis,
fac me tuis semper inhærere mandatis et a te numquam separari permittas. Amen.

The Gift of a Dandelion

This lovely photo is of a little lady giving a great man a small and unimportant flower; but you can see from the way he accepts it that it is not unimportant to him - and indeed, nothing was ever unimportant to him, because all things were God’s gifts.

Today is the sixty-fourth anniversary of the death of that very great man, G. K. Chesterton, and the Ecumenical Diablogger has a post here, which includes a very good prayer that GKC's name may, before too long, be included in the list of those Servants of God on their way towards Canonization.

Can we, today, ‘give him a little flower’ by offering a little prayer that his name - and his example - may come to be acknowledged by Holy Mother Church ? If we do we can be sure, from the evidence of this photo, that it will be gladly accepted and much treasured.
