Ez 9:1-7;10:18-22; Ps 113:1-6; Mt 18:15-20��

No one is like the LORD our God. The transcendence of the LORD is beyond our imagination. The LORD is unlike anything in the whole universe. We who seek the LORD must have his grace to desire and to seek. None of our senses can detect the LORD, and our intellect is completely helpless to know him.

1Phil 3:8-14; Ps 16:1B-2A, 5, 7-8, 11; Mt 19:27-29

All the saints come to the same conclusion that Saint Paul came to—we come to the truth that relationship with Christ makes everything else “so much rubbish.” Saint Clare of Assisi, friend and follower of Saint Francis of Assisi, discovered that the LORD is her portion and her cup.

2Cor 9:6-10; Ps 112:1,2,5-9; Jn 12:24-26

As the story goes, the Deacon Lawrence was arrested for being a Christian, and he was commanded to bring the wealth of the church before his captors that they might reap some profit upon his arrest.

Where do we expect to experience the presence of God? That is the question that comes from reading the passage from the First Book of Kings. God raises up Elijah as a prophet during a very difficult time in Israeli history.

Na 2:1, 3; 3:1-3, 6-7 Deut 32:35CD-36AB, 39ABCD, 41 Mt 16:24-28

“Learn then that I, I alone, am God,
and there is no god besides me.
It is I who bring both death and life,
I who inflict wounds and heal them.”

This quote found in the Book of Deuteronomy is a part of our Responsorial for today’s Mass. The sovereignty of God, the Almighty is still a great mystery to us, even today.

Dn 7:9-10,13,14; Ps 97:1,2,5,6,9; 2Pt 1:16-19; Mt 17:1-9

Only eyes full of faith can see the fullness of The Glory. It is the gift of faith that enables us to go beyond all our senses to behold the truth that the LORD is king. In this faith-vision we see what cannot be seen until the beatific vision of the future kingdom.
