Bible Study Continues: Genesis 4-11




O God, who by water didst wash away the crimes of a guilty world, and by the overflowing of the deluge didst give a figure of regeneration, that that one and the same element might in a mystery be the end of vice and the origin of virtue; look, o Lord, on the face of thy Church, and multiply in her thy regenerations, who by the streams of thy abundant grace fillest thy city with joy, and openest the fonts of baptism all over the world. (From the Blessing of the Font, Office for Holy Saturday, translation of Abbot Fernand Cabrol, O.S.B., in 1926 and reprinted by IHS Press, 2013.)
