and I will be found by you

For I know the thoughts 
That I think towards you, saith the Lord
Thoughts of peace and not of affliction
To give you an end, and patience,
And you shall call upon me and you shall go
And you shall pray to me and I will hear you
You shall seek me and shall find me
When you shall seek me with all your heart
And I will be found by you, saith the Lord... 
Jeremiah 29:11-14a

Divine Nourishment

     One of the Bible stories I most enjoyed my Papi telling me was about God's beloved complaining children, wandering for all of those years, resisting His divine nourishment, glorious wisdom and
holy protection. I remember a feeling of awe at the magnitude of power in the pillar of fire and pillar of smoke. Today's readings at Mass made me feel that I was in the tender embrace of my loving Papi, while he is in the tender embrace of our Heavenly Father.
