Let your thoughts be on heavenly things, not on the things that are in the earth. (Colossians 3:2)That is the secret. Look beyond and above the things of men and earth. It is there—paradoxically, surprisingly and unexpectedly—that we begin to see the hand of God in the events of daily life, the face of Christ dimly outlined among those whom we know and love.

O Oriens, O Radiant Dawn, splendor of eternal light, sun of justice: come, shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death.
