07-31-19 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

July 31, 2019
(St. Ignatius of Loyola, Priest)
As Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the two tablets of the commandments in his hands, he did not know that the skin of his face had become radiant while he conversed with the LORD. When Aaron, then, and the other children of Israel saw Moses and noticed how radiant the skin of his face had become, they were afraid to come near him. Only after Moses called to them did Aaron and all the rulers of the community come back to him.  Ex_34:29-35

You know, beloved, sometimes we just don’t know why everyone seems to avoid us.  Is it our breath, or our words, or our looks?  Did I say something wrong or maybe nothing at all.  Moses didn’t know that his face was radiant with righteousness.  Sometimes, beloved, it’s not the things we do wrong, but our own righteousness that chases people away.  And that doesn’t mean that we are being pompous, acting “holier than thou.”  It means that, just like Moses, there’s something about us that tells others that we are close to God.  And that scares people.  I know it scares me!  But I would rather be closer to those people, even though I know I’m a sinner, and hope some of that righteousness just might rub off a little.  And maybe I, maybe we can all have a little of God’s glow shining on our faces to others too!
