Lenten reflection 3-26-16 Easter Vigil

Tell the Israelites to go forward.  And you, lift up your staff and, with hand outstretched over the sea, split the sea in two, that the Israelites may pass through it on dry land. 

I am choosing to reflect on the third reading of the Easter Vigil rather than the gospel.  Having had the privilege of attending the Easter Vigil Mass for the past several years, I marvel at it every time.  Starting with the act of creation itself, and continuing through all of salvation history, the vigil shows us quite literally that God has not for a moment removed His hand from the care of His people.
Lord thank you for your constant and abiding care.  May we thank and praise you forever.

To aid in your prayer, I am attaching a favorite song El Shaddai written by Michael Card, sung by Amy Grant
