There are many good feast days during this month. Today happened to be the feast of St. Marguerite D’ Youville, a Canadian born saint who served the poor in Montreal and founded the Grey Nuns. I love that she had a heart for the poor because within my own heart is a deep desire to serve the least of these. I have spent much of my life seeking God’s face in those around me. Do I see God here, now, before me?
The Matthew 25 reading today was about separating the sheep and goats. Where, Lord, did we see you? Do we seek you in all things? Do we recognize you when we stumble upon you in the oddest and most incongruent of places? Give me eyes to see you, a desire to serve you, and a heart, like St. Marguerite’s, to give without counting the cost.
