Office of Readings: Exodus 19:3-4

And Moses went up unto God, and the LORD called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel: Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and [how] I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself.

Retreat Poem

Yet it is far from Christmas, when a star
Sang in the pane...
For now the light of early Lent
Glitters upon the icy step.

(Thomas Merton, "The Winter's Night")

Office of Readings (Exodus 2:1-22)

"I am a stranger in a strange land." (Ex. 2:22)

Even among his own people, Moses said, "I am a stranger in a strange land." Truly, as Saint Augustine states, "Our hearts are restless, O Lord, until they rest in Thee."
