Mindful of my imperfections, seeking to know Truth more deeply and to live Love more fully.

Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? Quem patronum rogaturus? Cum vix iustus sit securus?

The wonderful water

Today’s first reading (Ezekiel 47:1-9, 12) is a prophecy about a wondrous river that flows from the temple of God.

Of course, in the time and place in which this prophecy was first set down, water was a precious commodity and flowing water would often fail in that arid climate.

That is why the idea of a river that gets deeper and stronger as it flows would be very much appreciated by the people of that time and place.

For us, this image is a reminder that the wonder of God only gets only deeper and stronger the further we journey in him.

This Lent and always, may you and I be continuously immersed in the love and the Spirit and the wonder of God.
