“Of you my heart speaks” Painting: Ronald Raab, CSC

Today’s image was painted with bottle caps, cardboard, rubber mats and other assorted materials. No brush was used, no fingers this time. This was an exciting way to allow the image of Jesus to emerge. 

Today’s Psalm from the Liturgy

Responsorial Psalm Ps 27:7-8a, 8b-9abc, 13-14

R. (8b) I long to see your face, O Lord.
Hear, O LORD, the sound of my call;
have pity on me, and answer me.
Of you my heart speaks; you my glance seeks.
R. I long to see your face, O Lord.
Your presence, O LORD, I seek.
Hide not your face from me;
do not in anger repel your servant.
You are my helper: cast me not off.
R. I long to see your face, O Lord.
I believe that I shall see the bounty of the LORD
in the land of the living.
Wait for the LORD with courage;
be stouthearted, and wait for the LORD.
R. I long to see your face, O Lord.
