Today’s text

Matthew 5:8

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.


Beatific vision tradition calls
the seeing of the One who
sees in love, so different
from our seeing, obsessed eyes
compulsive, fixed on warts
and wounds, busy tongues
seeking every sore spot.

With delight the Seer sees
every curve and contour
of body and soul, eyes
lingering, caressing,
slowly moving, savoring
even the smallest the quiver
of lips upturned into the smile
that echoes the Divine Heart’s
joy, who sees and says, “mine,
mine, mine,” bursting with Love
at the sight of life filled
and revealing the Life who is.

Just so we are seen by
the Beauty who seeks
and savors Beauty
in all, inviting us to see
self and all so well, and
seeing to know in all we
see the One who always is …
and Who always is Love.

Seeing that we are seen
in love, vision is pure, and
we see with love through
eyes longing for the One
Love present in all that is, waiting
the day we see Beauty
and nothing more.

Pr. David L. Miller
