...then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
1 Cor 13:12
And no apologies for re-posting these reflections by St Clare:
Look into this mirror of Christ daily,
ponder there your own face,
see what you need to become ready for God,
contemplate in this mirror Christ and his stupendous poverty,
look at his work on our behalf
consider his humility,
contemplate his love,
consider, look and contemplate
- from Clare of Assisi's letters to Agnes of Prague
Consider, look, contemplate....then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known...I'm on sacristy duty this weekend; these were the thoughts swirling through my mind as I was setting up on a peaceful, gloriously sunny morning.
Ponder there your own face? ...scary stuff... breathtaking...
