“Grant me, O Lord, my God, a mind to know You, a heart to seek You, wisdom to find You, conduct pleasing to You, faithful perseverance in waiting for You, and a hope of finally embracing You.” – St. Thomas Aquinas

Monday Musings - Hey! Where Are You?
If God used Balaam’s donkey to get that prophet’s attention, I guess he can use me to get yours. May these periodic Monday postings (God willing) generate fruitful discussion and faithful change.

WHEN YOU LOVE SOMEONE, YOU WANT:
TO BE IN THAT PERSON’S PRESENCE AS
OFTEN AS POSSIBLE;
TO TALK TO THAT PERSON;
TO HEAR WHAT THAT
PERSON HAS TO SAY;
TO SHARE YOUR JOYS
TO BE LOVED AND
TO LOVE AND COMFORT
GOD IS LOVE.HE SENT HIS ONLY SON TO DIE AND ATONE FOR OUR
SINS IN ORDER THAT EACH OF US MIGHT SPEND ETERNITY WITH HIM.
UNTIL THAT TIME, HE HAS HUMBLED HIMSELF BY PHYSICALLY
REMAINING HERE WITH AND AMONG US, HIDDEN IN OUR TABERNACLES AND IN THE SACRED
HOSTS STORED THEREIN AND/OR EXPOSED IN OUR MONSTRANCES.
