From today's Mass

I was particularly struck by a passage from one of the prayers from today's Mass:

     "...O Lord, ... in kindness turn our wills towards Thee, even though they resist Thee."

Give me grace, Lord, to cooperate with grace.

Although Moses was commanded to speak to the rock, he struck it twice, thus turning his will away from God.  As punishment, Moses did not enter the promised land.
