St. Ignatius of Loyola, P

Exodus 34: 29-35, Ps. 99, Matthew 13:44-46

Courting joy

It is perfectly possible, though not easy, to discover the kingdom of heaven on earth. Such a discovery makes a person happy or perhaps joyful is a better word. Even a glimpse of such a world drives a disciple to want more than a glimpse. This drive is not like the career drives we have for success, fame or position. It is experienced as a hunger for love which only Love itself can satisfy. Pray for the glimpse and the hunger.
