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?

At all levels

Today’s readings demonstrate the diversity of how God reveals himself.

At one end of the spectrum, in the Gospel (Matthew 17:22-27), a coin miraculously appears in the mouth of a fish.

At the other end of the spectrum, in the first reading (Ezekiel 1:2-5, 24-28c), there is a cosmic vision of God in his glory.

And then there is this: in the same Gospel passage as the fish, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ speaks briefly of what would be the pinnacle of revelation and salvation: his death and resurrection.

At the beginning of this day and the beginning of this week, may God enable us to recognize clearly and respond rightly to every moment of grace that comes our way.
