“Though the mountains leave their place and the hills be shaken, my love shall never leave you nor my covenant of peace be shaken, says the LORD, who has mercy on you.” (Is 54:10)
Today the Church has prepared for us nine readings: seven from the Old Testament, and two from the New Testament. Each reading stages a new version of the same story—“my love shall never leave you… says the Lord.” From Adam through Abraham to the Apostles; from Paradise through Egypt to the Holy Land—the same God’s love appears. Sometimes you are afraid that your sins are too big, your weakness so dramatic, your relations broken, your life wounded beyond repair. Not for Him: “Though the mountains leave their place and the hills be shaken, my love shall never leave you nor my covenant of peace be shaken”.
“May the light of Christ rising in glory dispel the darkness of our hearts and minds” (Lucenarium)
