THE DARK DEVOTIONAL is Sick Pilgrim’s weekly feature on the Sunday Mass readings, published every Friday. These meditations may provoke, depress, or inspire, depending on where your heart is.
But we hope they’ll help us to see a little better in the dark.
“I once received a letter from an old lady in California who informed me that when the tired reader comes home at night, he wishes to read something that will lift up his heart, and it seems her heart had not been lifted up by anything of mine she had read. I think that if her heart had been in the right place, it would have been lifted up.” –Flannery O’Connor
