In the name of God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.
What’s the best meal that you’ve ever had? For me, it was at an Italian restaurant a few blocks from where we lived in Alexandria, Virginia. We eat several times a day, and so it can become routine. But when we have one of those truly exceptional meals, they tend to stick with us. What’s the most beautiful thing that you’ve ever seen: perhaps a piece of artwork in a museum, a sunset in the mountains, a star-filled sky on a clear night, your spouse on your wedding day? Again, our eyes are so used to seeing things that when we are presented with true beauty, it stops us in our tracks. Taste and vision are powerful senses, and perhaps that is why the Psalmist wrote “Taste and see that the Lord is good.”
