"The lowly will ever find joy in the Lord"
I opened today's reading for the Liturgy and my eyes fell upon the first reading from Isaiah 29 and these words just jumped out at me:
"The lowly will ever find joy in the Lord"!! The exclamation points are mine, but I thought to myself that I had sort of been knocked over the head with a fundamental truth and one that certainly fit my retreat last August. It is the lowly, the humble, who always find joy in the Lord!
Let us strive to be lowly and then we will be joyful and be a part of the great Christ project to bring all things to fulfillment in God.
