Knowledge of the mysteries of the Kingdom of heaven
has been granted to you.
The Kingdom of God is where we belong….
I think we are all of us homesick for it.
The kingdom is not an exclusive, well-trimmed suburb
with snobbish rules about who can live there.
The Kingdom of God is already here
but not yet fully realized.
R. Alan Woods
In you, O Lord, I take refuge;
let me never be put to shame.
In your justice rescue me,
and deliver me …
Incline your ear to me, and save me.
