From Today's Office
Where can I go from your spirit or where can I flee from your presence? Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is so high that I cannot attain it.
Psalm 139:7, 6
Meditation
My father used to say that when we get to heaven and see Jesus, our first thought is not going to be that we have never seen him before. Instead, we will grin and say, “It’s you, it’s you. I have seen you everywhere.” —Robert Benson, A Good Life: Benedict's Guide to Everyday Joy, Paraclete Press
Prayer of the Day

Lord Christ, your arms are always open to welcome us as your children and to keep us forever. It gives me confidence that you will be with me through all times, the good and the bad, and will guide me safely to the world to come. Amen.
