Wednesday of Week 17 Year 1

Do we ever see radiance emitting from certain persons? When a bride is walking the aisle during the wedding, we see the bride's face radiant and exuberant, as she is experiencing one of the many happy moments in her life. When a penitent has made a good confession, we see his or her face radiant, because a heavy load of sin has been swept away. When a woman finds out she is pregnant, her face shows radiance, as she is excited and joyful of the possibility of becoming a mother. So, we see many situations in life where radiance can be seen on our face.

In today's reading, Moses' face was radiant after speaking with the Lord. When we come for Mass, our faces ought to be radiant after we have "spoken" with and listened to the Lord. But is this the case in church? Do we emit radiance after Mass, or do we remain as we are and some of us even put on a sour face or monkey face as we leave the church, due to some reason or another? May we come to realise the presence of the Lord, and like Moses, let our radiance shine for all to see and give Him the greater glory.
