Under the weather

December 9, 2008 | Advent

I’m not feeling so great these days. Hence, the low level of activity on the blog. I hope to be back to my normal routine later today or tomorrow. In the meantime, here’s a little thought to ponder:

When I was reading my Magnificat reflections this Advent, I came across this one line that has stuck in my head for days on end.

“The Lord is not scandalized by our unworthiness; he waits for the faith that welcomes his Presence.”

Doesn’t that just make your shoulders relax? God knows we’re unworthy, but he loves us anyway. Yes, we should try to be more worthy, but with all our faults and all our weaknesses we are still beloved by the Beloved.
