Gift: Piety (Reverence) – With the gift of reverence, sometimes called piety, we have a deep sense of respect for God and the Church. A person with reverence recognizes our total reliance on God and comes before God with humility, trust, and love.
Reading: Though young men faint and grow weary, and youths stagger and fall, They that hope in the LORD will renew their strength, they will soar on eagles’ wings; They will run and not grow weary, walk and not grow faint. (Isaiah 40:30-31)
Observation: As I read these verses this morning, I just couldn’t get this song out of my head. I hope God will reveal more to me at Mass tonight at the Newman Center, but if not, this song is a good prayer to guide my life.
