Feast of the Presentation of the Lord, February 2, 2013

Feast of the Presentation of the Lord
Candle Mass Day

Thought for the day:

Make yourself familiar with the angels, and behold them frequently in spirit; for without being seen they are present with you.  -- St. Francis de Sales

Lo I am with you always, means when you look for God, God is in the look of your eyes, in the thought of looking, nearer to you than yourself, or things that have happened to you.

"Nothing or no one is more beautiful than I, since God--beauty itself--has fallen in love with me."

Ask God for the gift of seeing yourself as God sees you--beloved beyond all measure.

Love means showing the other how beautiful he or she is. The other person cannot discover this alone; even a mirror will not suffice. Another human being is needed. Where that happens, love is realized.

Sr. Eleanor May Klaber, VHM
