Daily Mass: To See as God Sees. Catholic Inspiration

Three Great Things

Fr. Andrew’s Daily Mass Homily Podcast – Tuesday of the 2nd Week of the Year

Samuel meets the sons of Jesse to anoint one king of Israel.  Each son appears kingly, but God replies:

“Not as man sees does God see,
because he sees the appearance
but the LORD looks into the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7)

May we see as God sees – both within our hearts and in the hearts of others – and respond with the love of Christ!
