An excerpt, which touches on the first reading (Moses and the burning bush):
My wife remarked, "I'm so glad that Bishop Morlino understood how important it is to post solid, intellectually meaty young priests on campus." I agree.
How odd Moses must have looked, on his face, in front of shrubbery.
Russian icon of the
Theotokos "Burning Bush"
How odd you and I must look, on our knees, for a "little piece of bread." It's silly! You can't get your head around it. Either we have faith in it—or you have to mock it! There's no other choice.
Our Lady of the Sign–Ark of Mercy,
St. Stanislaus Church, Chicago
To have faith in it is to admit: I comprehend only a little; I sing, but not all the notes; I speak, but I don't know all the words; I feel, but not all the beatings of the heart. There is some that is left only for you, Lord, only for you.
