amazing imagery

Do yourself a favor. If you don't normally go to daily mass or read the lectionary readings, check 'em out this week. The 1st Readings are from Wisdom and they are absolutely beautiful. A taste from today:

For Wisdom is mobile beyond all motion,
and she penetrates and pervades all things by reason of her purity.
For she is an aura of the might of God
and a pure effusion of the glory of the Almighty;
therefore nought that is sullied enters into her.
For she is the refulgence of eternal light,
the spotless mirror of the power of God,
the image of his goodness.
(Wisdom 7:24-26)

You can find today's readings here.
