Saturday of the Second Week
As we listen to God’s mercy in the readings today, we hear that the whole is present in every part. The readings suggest that God’s heart dwells everywhere: in our separations, in our transitions, our transformations, our re-emergences.  In our comings and goings and comings again, as we continue to evolve in relation with the centrality of God’s heart, we weave ever more deeply into His abundant hospitality and seamless Mother-Father love.  Let us drop our worldly fears and failures, our privations and our petty ways, as we trust this union, God’s embrace.

As we reach the threshold, we sense the power in this eternal recognition and the light of this eternal love.  As we take a deliberate bow in faith, we see no separation in this in-dwelling place.  This reading brings us right to the heart of the matter, the heart center and circle of complete compassion.  Through lostness, we are found, and from our homelessness, we return home. 

May we learn to turn ever more clearly to the light of God’s Love. May we stretch our hearts and minds today into our Divine Destination.   Oh God of one heart, one mind, we love You.  We praise Your holy name.
