Quicumque Christum Quaeritis

This past Sunday, alongside many Christians around the globe, we celebrate the Feast of the Transfiguration. Once again I found comfort in this 5th century prayer etched into our church’s cornerstone: Whoever you are who seek Christ, raise your eyes on high.  The prayer continues on to proclaim that those who seek “will be allowed to see a sign of eternal glory”. This week, as we celebrate this glorious event in our Lord’s life, it is not hard to look out and see a very needy world. Singing this prayer at Vespers over the weekend, it is my  hope and prayer that all of us, whoever we may be, might take a moment to look up; and in so doing,  truly catch a blessing of God’s glory.
