Let us pray.
Father, You have, from the beginning, called us all forward to live in your life, ever growing in love for you and for one another. Moses and the Israelites realized this for the first time at the holy mountain and we always have the opportunity to increase that understanding. Jesus also taught us from the holy mountain and even now teaches us in every moment at the depth of our being. May new understanding of your once and for all revelation help us to love every more fully on our journey to you.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
