Quis ut Deus?


The Readings for Tuesday in the 16th Week of Ordinary Time (B2)

Who is a God like thee, pardoning iniquity and passing over transgression for the remnant of his inheritance?
Quis, Deus, similis tui, qui aufers iniquitatem, et transis peccatum reliquiarum haereditatis tuae? 

Who is a God like thee?
Gratitude post.
Who is a God like thee? 
Tim, the Warrens, Eric and Claire, Tony and Garry, and the OPL, the COM, Courage, and some folks at work, and the folks from college I still know. My online friends that to pray with and work with, to cowrite with and once in a while meet with. My job and apartment both by shear miracles in which to continue being happy and at peace. St Dominic’s, my home, and Star of the Sea parish, my quite place of prayer and adoration. 

Who is God like thee?

Thankful for being debt free, and for my kitteh. For all the beautiful places I have lived, and for odd twists and turns along the broken road, for my broken self, and the blessings that has given me, the mission, the fields white with harvest. For praying in Knock, for sitting in cemeteries, for Jim and Dave, for the fraternity, for that visit that afternoon to NYU in the fall of 1982. friends who don’t talk to me and old friends who do.

For folks who feel like they are my enemies, even though having an enemy would seem a great  luxury. For parents and grandparents and great grandparents. For family crossing now into three centuries. For roots and wings, for food.

For confession and penance, for absolution and struggles, for  pains and discomforts, for challenges and distractions.  For builders and shakers down. For weavers and unweavers. For Blue Ridge Mountains and Polk Gulch. For ddddddddddddddddddddddd,,,,,,,,,,,,mmmmmmmmmmmm and falling asleep at the keyboard.  For podcasts, for tech support as a mission, for icons and prayer corners, for D&D and dice.

Who is a God like thee?

For rainbows and for, for earthquakes and fires, for the Barbary Coast Trail, for ice cream and red sauce, spumoni, and Zabaglione. 

For salmon and shrimp, for chicken and biscuits, for biscuits and gravy, for sausage gravy.

For Giants Baseball and Mets Baseball, for anyone who can beat the Yankees and anyone who will try. For The Dubs and the A’s for bad grammar and poetry.

For La Boulangerie and Pretzel Croissants, for Ukes and who is a God like unto thee?

This is just stuff today…

What will tomorrow bring?
