Thought for the day Special moments of “presence” are important to us, even though we may not often speak of them. These can happen in all sort of ways: at the birth of a child, in nature, while listening to music, in prayer, as we contemplate a work of art and so forth. In any case, always unexpectedly. Often we would be a little embarrassed to talk about such “epiphanies” for fear of seeming foolish or naive but, nevertheless, such intimations of something more really matter to us personally because they give the holy a foothold in our own experience. We would like to prolong such experiences, but that is not their nature (as Peter discovered!). Prayer Help us, Lord, to recognise you more and more in the present moment of our lives, that our love for you may be real and our hope in you strong. KOM
