Commentary on the Gospel of

Claretian Bible Diary

Perhaps we associate our faith too much with buildings and special places. These have a powerful value as symbols: in remaining more or less unchanged from generation to generation they could be said to symbolize the unchangeableness of eternity. But the world of nature is a constantly changing world, it is forever surprising us. There are days when we need to be surprised. On such days, walk in the hills or along by the river. Meet the Lord whose eye took in every detail of ordinary living, who saw nature as a poet sees it, who saw parables of life in ordinary men and women’s work, who saw images of God “wherever life pours ordinary plenty.”
