My favorite psalm is Psalm 27 which, as it happens, is appointed for today's Eucharistic celebration. I had the following verse printed on the invitations to my Solemn Profession back in 1994:
One thing have I asked of the LORD;Here are two other verses that I particularly cherish:
one thing I seek; *
that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days
of my life;
You speak in my heart and say, "Seek my face." *The Rev. Dr. Agnes Norfleet considers this to be a "psalm of thin places" You can read her reflection about that right here.
Your face, LORD, will I seek.
What if I had not believed
that I should see the goodness of the LORD *
in the land of the living!
Reciting Psalm 27 in church this morning brought me once more to an experience of great thanksgiving for the grace of my vocation. Deo gratias!
