For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror

...then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

1 Cor 13:12

And no apologies for re-posting these reflections by St Clare:

Look into this mirror of Christ daily,
ponder there your own face,
see what you need to become ready for God,
contemplate in this mirror Christ and his stupendous poverty,
look at his work on our behalf
consider his humility,
contemplate his love,
consider, look and contemplate
- from Clare of Assisi's letters to Agnes of Prague

Consider, look, contemplate....then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known...I'm on sacristy duty this weekend; these were the thoughts swirling through my mind as I was setting up on a peaceful, gloriously sunny morning.

Ponder there your own face? ...scary stuff... breathtaking...

Welcome to my blog. I always love receiving comments; do feel free. If you're visiting from the A-Z challenge (or even if you're not!) could I thank you for your patience in using the dreaded captcha verification thingy. It's a pain, I know, but I've had problems with spam in the past and would rather keep Greenpatches as a junk-free zone.
