"The most basic Christian gesture in prayer is and always will be the sign of the cross. By signing ourselves we place ourselves under the protection of the cross; we hold it in front of us like a shield that will guard us in all the distress of daily life and give us the courge to go on. It is our visible and public Yes to him to who suffered for us."
Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI

Colossians 3:23-24
Whatever your work is, put your heart into it as if it were for the Lord and not for men, knowing that the Lord will repay you by making you his heirs. It is Christ the Lord that you are serving.

Reconciliation

I wonder how many people get hung up on John 3:16. How many have difficulty -- serious difficulty -- translating God so loved the 'world' to what is actually the very essence of the gospel -- God so loved the 'one.'

That is why they cannot say with certainty "God so loved 'me' that He gave His Son to die."

"To die for 'me.'"

But that's the whole point of the Lost Sheep. And the Lost Coin. And the Lost Son in Luke 15.

God loves you. God searches for you.

The one.

"If we ask how we are to become humble we must ask in prayer for the grace of humility and ask sincerely. Then, we must accept humiliations when they come our way. But let us never forget that there is an enormous difference between being humble and being humiliated.

Dom M. Eugene Boylan, O.C. R. (Irish Monk +1964)

I got some lightly yellow-tinted glasses in a classic tortoiseshell style (non-prescription, just for reducing eyestrain) and was still wearing them when I did a video chat with my mom. As soon as she answered, she said, "Wow, you look just like me at age 27!"

1. Yes, she used to have a very similar pair of (prescription) glasses when I was in elementary school.
2. Yes, I basically have her same face, but:
3. I'm 38. :D

I've been super snowed under at work this week, but I think my voice is almost back, so I guess that's something.

Actually reading all of 2 Samuel 11 now. When this part of David's story is read, the lectionaries generally leave out the middle part, where you see what an upstanding guy Uriah is, and skip straight from David spying on Bathsheba to the part where David has Uriah murdered.

I guess it shouldn't really matter what sort of guy Uriah was; it's still a really awful thing to do.

And, this being Florida, it ain't colder than that outside.

Some of that could be that it's 27C in this room, but if we set the a/c below 77F my mother-in-law claims she's freezing and we're wasting electricity, so 80F is about as cool as it gets in this room unless it's colder than that outside.

I've just remembered why I dislike drinking hot coffee. It makes me hot.
