St Camillus de Lellis
Exodus 3:1-6, 9-12. The Lord is kind and merciful – Ps 102(103):1-4, 6-7. Matthew 11:25-27.
Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground
We stand on holy ground, even when we sometimes don’t recognise it as such. We stand on holy ground each time we hold the hand of someone who is hurting, each time we wipe away a child’s tear, each time we speak up against injustice or empower someone to have their story heard. Each time we make a decision putting aside our own comfort or ego, each time we respond to someone’s needs, each time we listen to the small still voice of God. Holy ground is all around us. May we tread lightly enough to notice when we are on holy ground and stop to bow down and take off our sandals in awe.Email this Print This Page
