Drawn Forth from Nothingness

Pope St. John XXIII
"O God, with a wonderful gesture of love, you who are from the beginning and before all time, drew me forth from my nothingness, you gave me being, life, a soul, in fact all the faculties of my body and spirit; you opened my eyes to this light which sheds its radiance around me, you created me.

"So you are my Master and I am your creature. I am nothing without you and through you, I am all that I am. I can do nothing without you; indeed, it at every moment you did not support me I should slip back whence I came, into nothingness."
