A SUBLIME EXCHANGE

Altar of Shiloh

INKLING FOR

Crazy as this world encroaches on the human spirit, we are reminded to “Be still, and know that I am God.”  Psalm 46:10

I come to the altar with humble vessels

a mix of fear, hope, sorrow and joy

so goodly is life and — dare be your bride.

*

French spiritual author, Father Jean d’Elbee (+1982) gave retreats saying:  “Jesus takes our sins upon himself and we make his merits our own.”  At that, a retreatant replied, “My sins on him, his blood on me.”

 

NOBLE PELICAN

American White Pelican

GOOD SUNDAY AFFIRMATION

Biblically, the pelican symbolizes equality and is akin to Christ’s breastplate of sacrifice for humanity.  I wonder, if perhaps, we could ponder on this symbolism to invite us to resolve our world problems with much more nobility.  What do you think?

“Whoever had much did not have more, and whoever had little did not have less.”

-Letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians 8:13-15
