My Dear Parishioners:
A Place of Shelter
“Hide me in the shadow of Your wings”. (Psalm 17:8)
I need a place to hide - a place “apart” where I can reflect, where I can re-establish priorities, treasure all You’ve gifted me with, question and clarify who You are to me, what You are doing in and through me, what You wish I’d let You do.
Is there a place more perfect to hide than “in the shadow of Your wings”? I treasure that shadow as much as the people of old, who placed their sick by the roadside in hopes that, as You passed by, Your shadow would be cast on them.
I need not do even that. There is no need to search for Your shadow; no need to travel distant lands or visit hallowed shrines; for I walk, sleep, breathe, LIVE in the shadow of Your outstretched arms. It is really Your face I seek. But, until You come to call me home, I am content to take refuge in the shadow of Your wings.
Praise be to God, my solace, Amen.
Until next time,
