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?

"Lo, the day is coming..."

"...blazing like an oven,
when all the proud
and all evildoers
will be stubble,
and the day that is coming
will set them on fire,
leaving them neither root nor branch,
says the LORD of hosts.

"But for you who fear my name,
there will arise
the sun of justice
with its healing rays."

(Today's first reading - Malachi 3:19-20a)

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, be merciful to me - a sinner
