In days to come,Isaiah 2:2-5
The mountain of the Lord’s house
shall be established as the highest mountain
and raised above the hills.
All nations shall stream toward it.
Many peoples shall come and say:
“Come, let us go up to the Lord’s mountain,
to the house of the God of Jacob,
That he may instruct us in his ways,
and we may walk in his paths.”
For from Zion shall go forth instruction,
and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
He shall judge between the nations,
and set terms for many peoples.
They shall beat their swords into plowshares
and their spears into pruning hooks;
One nation shall not raise the sword against another,
nor shall they train for war again.
House of Jacob, come,
let us walk in the light of the Lord!
Sword of the Word and Spirit
May the sword of the Word and the sword of the Spirit heal our divisions and put an end to the swords of war (Hebrews 4:12; Ephesians 6:17).
Marana tha! Come, Lord Jesus!

Dear GMC, your reflection reminds me of what Saint Pope John Paul II said: “Holiness is to raise one’s eyes to the summits. It is intimacy with God the Father who is in Heaven. In this intimacy each one of us is aware of our nature with all its limitations and difficulties.” Today, I will go to the mountain of the Lord, to the summits, to find communion with God. And take everyone in prayer with me. Thank you, GMC, for your inspiring reflection.
Thank you for the beautiful quote, and for your prayerful retreat on the mountain of the Lord.
