Yesterday morning in his homily the priest made a brief reference, en route to his main point, to discovering what it means to be truly human, created in the image and likeness of God. How, he asked, can we live lives which radiate the love and the light of God?
I too had been wondering this the day before, as we celebrated the sublimely lovely feast of the Transfiguration. A Benedictine friend had shared a reflection in her blog, in which she used a sonnet by Malcolm Guite, and I was caught up by these lines:
There were no angels full of eyes and wings
Just living glory full of truth and grace.
The Love that dances at the heart of things
Shone out upon us from a human face
Imagine beginning today and every day, with this awareness and intention...
