Memorial of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, Priest
July 31, 2019
Today, in Mercy, Exodus tells us:
Obviously, I haven’t met Moses personally. 😂 But I have met many wonderful human beings who have reflected a similar radiance.
It is a mirrored glory that comes from friendship with God.
It glows in the innocence of children and the layered wisdom of the elderly. It blazes in those seeking social justice and in those silently, unwaveringly praying for it. It lights the hope of the living and the dying. It is that mysterious, unquenchable candle shining in both joy and sorrow. Its other holy names are Faith, Hope and Love.
No one need tell us. We know when we are in the presence of such Light. It needs no words.
Today, let’s pray for the blessing of this Radiance all over our shadowed world. Let’s pray for it to shine within us.
