April 12 - Psalm 27

Fr. Michael MachacekNativity of Our LordApril 12, 2024

today's other readings are Acts 5: 34-42 and John 6: 1-15

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?

So we read in Psalm 27, from the Book of Psalms in the Old Testament.

This is one of those psalms that brings a smile, and sometimes, a glow to my soul.  The psalmist is very forthright in his/her thoughts and hopes.  The only thing that matters is that one day the psalmist with dwell in the house of the Lord, and to behold Him. 

While the psalmist was at that time referring to the presence of God in the Temple in Jerusalem, it is only natural to transpose that desire to dwell in the house of the Lord to dwelling in the Kingdom of Heaven.  And there, dear reader, we will behold the glory of our God.
