Thursday in the Seventeenth Week of Ordinary Time
It was Moses who erected the Dwelling... He spread the tent over the dwelling and put the covering on top of the tent as the Lord had commanded him. (Exodus 40:16,19)
Father forever, that You allow us to give You a place where we may encounter Your presence does not mean that these locations are Your home. Only You can determine how You will be present to us.
Moses used human implements to house Your divine commands. May I look to You for both the Revelation that You are and the relationship that You call me to know. Through these gifts, may I embrace You where I am and be led through all stages of my journey by the promise of Your eternal home.
Saint Peter Chrysologus, pray for us.
