And He shall purify the sons of Levi

 Yesterday the Office of Readings contained this verse from the book of Malachi: "and he shall purify the sons of Levi...that they may offer unto the Lord an offering  of righteousness."(3:3, King James version) This at once brought to mind one of my favorite choruses from Handel's Messiah.  It's a fantastic piece of music.


  1. From todays Lauds - made a strong impression

    Tobit 4:15a, 16a, 18a, 19

    Do to no one what you yourself dislike. Give to the hungry some of your bread, and to the naked some of your clothing. Seek counsel from every wise man. At all times bless the Lord God, and ask him to make all your paths straight and to grant success to all your endeavors and plans.
