However, all in some way reflect the belief that God wills only good for each of us and that God calls us to lives of love, forgiveness, and service to others, according to the example of Christ.

He is the patron Saint of those condemned to death or who have been imprisoned for the witness to the faith, in virtue of the harsh prison which he endured and of the death which he encountered. You begin to sing a phrase from it, and make it a spontaneous, musical prayer. I hope that as you choose to serve Him, you will be blessed as I have been with this ministry. The liturgical renewal of the Council set out to promote the participation of the people in the celebration of the Liturgy, at certain times and places (through hymns, active participation, and lay ministries), which had previously given rise to forms of prayer alternative to, or substitutive of, the liturgical action itself.

In the first chapter I have stated how my convictions in regard to this have been strengthened, and what gave occasion to the writing of the book. They had again intermarried with the idolatrous nations around them. As a counter image to the personified demons of verses 5-6, these verses promise that the Lord will command his angels to protect the believer on his life’s pathway. Praise from the heart is not enough to please the Lord if we are not worshiping the true God, and so we must prize truth alongside ardor when we praise our Creator.
