Deuteronomy 18:15-20

My Beloved, no mortal man can look at God and live for He is awesome His brilliance is greater than a thousand suns; yet God wanted us to know Him intimately. He wanted to touch us, talk to us, walk among us, reveal His infinite love for us, become accessible to us, though not in a way that would cause us to tremble in fear in His Presence. So He sent You to us incarnate of the Virgin Mary through the power of the Holy Spirit. What He promised  through Moses in verse 18 "I shall raise up a prophet from their midst, one of their brothers, who will be like you. I will put my words into his mouth and he will tell them all that I command," He fulfilled through You.

1 Corinthians 7:32-35

My Beloved, there are some whom You call both men and woman to have an intimate union with You, free from all the worldly distractions that would take away their focus from You and called to serve You in perfect abandonment. Forgetful of self but only of You such blessed men and women are invited to keep their gaze on You while they go about in the world strengthened by this divine  union to show the world how glorious it is to live in perfect union with You.

Psalm 95:1-2, 6-9

My Beloved, God has made a new Covenant with man and it is sealed in Your Blood. God, clothed in human flesh has walked among us and we have been given a foretaste of heaven.  You have saved us from slavery to sin and our joy comes from recognizing the infinite love of God for His creatures, it is a joy that drives us to our knees in worship and adoration. Chosen by God and led by Him as a shepherd leads his flock. We have an eternal destiny which is perfect and ecstatic union with You. Keep us humble, obedient and loving always.

Mark 1:21-28

My Beloved, You spoke with authority because You are God - this very same authority is given to Your Church as we who belong to her listen to her.
