The Lord Is My Chef Daily Recipe for the Soul by Fr. Nicanor F. Lalog II Friday in the Fifteenth Week of Ordinary Time, Year I, 21 July 2023 Exodus 11:10-12:14 <*(((><<< + >>><)))*> Matthew 12:1-8
Your words today, dear God remind us of your presence, of your journeying with us, of your passing over: "But the blood will mark the houses where you are. Seeing the blood, I will pass over you; thus, when I strike the land of Egypt, no destructive blow will come upon you" (Exodus 12:13-14).
This came into fulfillment in Jesus Christ's coming in our midst: "Jesus was going through a field of grain on the sabbath" (Matthew 12:1) when the Pharisees noticed the day than the persons at the scene that they sorely missed the whole point of the Lord's presence among them, "I say to you, something greater than the temple is here" (Matthew 12:6).
Keep us aware of you always, O God; let us find your face on the face of everyone we meet, let us recognize you in the person next to us especially those searching for you, in need of comfort, and those lost because no one sees them, no one recognizes them nobody loves them. Amen.
