In Our Hearts

What advantage has the worker from his toil?
I have considered the task that God has appointed
for the sons of men to be busied about.
He has made everything appropriate to its time,
and has put the timeless into their hearts,
without man's ever discovering,
from beginning to end, the work which God has done.  
Ecc. 3

In this morning's First Reading the author of the Book of Ecclesiastes reminds us that the Lord has put timelessness into our hearts. We are made for God, made for heaven, made for a Beauty and Truth far beyond, a Mystery very near that we glimpse from time to time with his grace.
