At Mass recently we had the reading about God asking Solomon what gift he wanted and Solomon asked for a discerning and compassionate heart. God grants him this gift (and lots of others besides). Right now, I guess I’m asking for the same thing, although I would name it slightly differently – I’d like to have a clear-headed perspective not only about my own life but about the world in general. It is way too easy for me to lose my sense of equilibrium and too many people suffer as a result.
What grace are you longing for today?
