Pie in the Sky, Renee Decator

"You duped me, O LORD, and I let myself be duped."
from the first reading (Jeremiah)

This, perhaps, is my favorite line in the Bible.
If it's not at the top, it is definitely in the top 3.

"And so I say to you, you are Peter,
and upon this rock I will build my church,
and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it.
I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven.
Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven;
and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
from the Gospel (Matthew)

The Ceiling of St. Ignatius, Andrea Pozzo

"He said in reply,
“I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”
But the woman came and did Jesus homage, saying, “Lord, help me.”
He said in reply,
“It is not right to take the food of the children
and throw it to the dogs.”
She said, “Please, Lord, for even the dogs eat the scraps
that fall from the table of their masters.”
Then Jesus said to her in reply,
“O woman, great is your faith!
Let it be done for you as you wish.”
And the woman’s daughter was healed from that hour."
from the gospel (Matthew)

Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time - God is a whisper

Elijah in the Wilderness, Lord Frederick Leighton

"A strong and heavy wind was rending the mountains
and crushing rocks before the LORD—
but the LORD was not in the wind.
After the wind there was an earthquake—
but the LORD was not in the earthquake.
After the earthquake there was fire—
but the LORD was not in the fire.
After the fire there was a tiny whispering sound.
When he heard this,
Elijah hid his face in his cloak
and went and stood at the entrance of the cave."
from the first reading (1 Kings)

an 18th - neither death nor life

"For I am convinced that neither death, nor life,
nor angels, nor principalities,
nor present things, nor future things,
nor powers, nor height, nor depth,
nor any other creature will be able to separate us
from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord."
from the second reading (Romans)
