More on life in the city

"Shout, and sing for joy, O inhabitant of Zion, for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel."
--Isaiah 12: 6

It's really summer now: the windows are open, the ice cream trucks are driving around playing their treacly music, gangsta cars are cruising, construction is happening all around us. I was very aware of all the energy, the noise, the creative (and sometimes destructive) collisions of millions of people living cheek by jowl, during Holy Mass last night. It is poignant to think of God coming to dwell in the midst of the city, coming to share in all the pageantry and turmoil of the city.

I have many more thoughts on city life--we'll see how much I can get posted. God's blessings on all of you who visit this site!
