Today’s old Testament reading gives us the wonderful account of Moses and the Burning Bush. ‘Moses said, “I will turn aside and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt.”’

This ‘turning aside’ is essential for us in our spiritual life, to enable us to be present to the Lord amidst all our daily tasks. It is a simple, swift glance at His Majesty who loves us so.

As this day progresses, may we indeed do this, and so open ourselves to much grace. May God bless you.
