Today was such a surprise for all of us this day in KC... the storm has been foretold so we bundled up to walk out and discover a spring like day... wet from rain overnight, with a mild breeze, sun and 51 degrees! People driving around with their windows down while at home the schools are closed and maybe up to a foot of snow and 50mph winds!
The glory entering the Temple today in the Presentation is easy to dwell upon surrounded by this glorious sunshine! Jesus becomes the glory in our Temple each day through His Sacrament and His Word, His Saints with us each day of the journey!
When Simeon meets them today and speaks of the Glory that has entered the world for generations to come! Jesus is in our hearts, minds and souls now and forever more! Simeon also mentions how Mary will share in the suffering of her Son of God - a sword will pierce you, so that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed. Luke 2:34 Yes, Mary knows our pain and takes it to Jesus!
Who is the King of glory? He is the Lord! Psalm 24 from mass today!
Jesus, our hearts are back with the family in the storm in Minnesota, yet we are lifted up today by this glorious sunny spring-like day which surrounds us. We know that our inner temple is filled with your LIGHT as we face all the storms of life. Jesus is in control! All the waiting and hoping and praying is now filling us with JOY as we see our KC family finding their home filled with the LIGHT/LOVE/LIFE of Christ and his Bride, The Church! Jesus, we trust in you. Amen and Hallelujah
