Lynn Paxton has sent in these three photos from the current building work on the Sagrada Familia (before the star was hoisted into place!).
Daily Readings Ecclesiasticus 48.1-4, 9-11
48 Then Elijah arose, a prophet like fire, and his word burned like a torch. 2 He brought a famine upon them, and by his zeal he made them few in number. 3 By the word of the Lord he shut up the heavens, and also three times brought down fire. 4 How glorious you were, Elijah, in your wondrous deeds! Whose glory is equal to yours? 9 You were taken up by a whirlwind of fire, in a chariot with horses of fire. 10 At the appointed time, it is written, you are destined* to calm the wrath of God before it breaks out in fury, to turn the hearts of parents to their children, and to restore the tribes of Jacob. 11 Happy are those who saw you and were adorned* with your love! For we also shall surely live.*
Matthew 17:10-13 And the disciples asked him, ‘Why, then, do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?’ He replied, ‘Elijah is indeed coming and will restore all things; but I tell you that Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but they did to him whatever they pleased. So also the Son of Man is about to suffer at their hands.’ Then the disciples understood that he was speaking to them about John the Baptist. Prayer for the day: Lord we pray for your people who find today a trial. Give them hope and courage to face the day. Let them feel your presence as they desperately feel around for a safe place to be. Put people in their way who will radiate your love to them. Let them sense something of the peace which only you can give. Amen.
