Our Lady of Fatima

A father of the fatherless
   and a judge for the widows,
   is God in his holy habitation.
God makes a home for the lonely;
He leads out the prisoners into prosperity,
   Only the rebellious dwell in a parched land.

Psalm 68[67]: 5-6

.    .    .

In case any doubt remained about God’s preferential treatment of the downcast and oppressed: in his holy habitation, God is the defender and protector of those in need. Holiness cannot be separated from care for the downtrodden; to be holy is to make ‘a home for the lonely,’ not to hide ourselves away somewhere, as God in his holy habitation is not secluded, but opens himself to all those who need him.

Deo gratias.
