The LORD IS My Light And My Salvation; Whom Shall I Fear?

This is a collection of more Mother Angelica’s lessons to help you go on in these difficult times. “If a man seeks the face of the Lord, he will see the glory of the Lord unveiled and, having been made similar to the angels, he will continually behold the face of the Father who is in heaven” (PG, 12, 1281). St Augustine, in his commentary on the Psalms, continues in this way the prayer of the Psalmist: “I have not asked from you some sort of prize outside of you, but your face. “Your face, O Lord, I seek’. I shall persevere in this quest; indeed, I do not seek something of little worth, but your face, O Lord, to love you freely, since I find nothing else of greater worth…. “Do not turn away, angry with your servant’, so that in my seeking you, I am taken up with something else. What can be a greater sorrow than this for one who loves and seeks the truth of your face?” (Expositions on the Psalms, 26, 1, 8-9, Rome, 1967, pp. 355, 357).
