Every best gift, and every perfect gift, is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no change, nor shadow of alteration.
Call me not away in the midst of my days
thy years are unto generation and generation.
Ps 102,25 - 26
In the beginning, O Lord, thou foundedst the earth end the heavens are the works of thy hands.
They shall perish but thou remainest and all of them shall grow old like a garment And as a vesture thou shalt change them, and they shall be changed.
But thou art always the selfsame, and thy years shall not fail.
For I am the Lord, and I change not
and you the sons of Jacob are not consumed.
But the counsel of the Lord standeth for ever
the thoughts of his heart to all generations.
For she is a vapour of the power of God, and a certain pure emanation of the glory of the almighty God
and therefore no defiled thing cometh into her.
Sap 7,25 - 26
For she is the brightness of eternal light, and the unspotted mirror of God\'s majesty, and the image of his goodness.
And being but one, she can do all things and remaining in herself the same, she reneweth all things, and through nations conveyeth herself into holy souls, she maketh the friends of God and prophets.
