From Today's Office
Surely you desire truth in the inner parts; you teach me wisdom in the inmost place.
Psalm 51:6
Translation always works between the polarities of word and spirit. Word is what is said. Spirit is what is meant — Eugene Petersen

Prayer of the Day for Eucharist

Heavenly Father, I see that doing your will makes me one of the family—one with Jesus, and with all believers. What a miracle, to be able to be a part of your family! Amen.
