Three Kings

Not "those" three kings, though. The configuration of the readings and today's saint give us three kings to think about. The first king is Pharaoh from the first chapter of Exodus. He was the "new king who knew not Joseph" and set to enslave the people of Israel. The second king is the saint of the day, St. Henry, the "Holy Roman Emperor." And the third king? That would be God, to whom be "the kingdom, the power and the glory forever and ever." Amen? Amen!

Hi Sr. Anne! I think I saw you in Boston at the Motherhouse! I was one of the last girls to leave after the St. Paul Summer Program (which I wish was longer) :-) ...
Awesome reflections - I look forward to reading more! :-)

Agh! I was wondering if just perhaps maybe you had come and were still there.... Oh, I wish I had been able to actually meet you! It will have to be next year...
