Psalm 95; 1 Cor 7:32-35; Mark 1:21-28 St Thomas AquinasFor even if it is better to enlighten than merely to shine, soit is better to give to others the fruit of one’s contemplation than merely to contemplate.

Taking the Angelic Doctor’s words to mind and heart, how might we give to others what we contemplate this day, that is, the Lord’s Day? May the WORD enlighten you!
