"Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain, declares the Psalmist. Who are those who labor to build it? All those who in the Church preach the word of God, the ministers of God's Sacraments.
"But 'unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.' We speak from without; he builds from within. It is he who builds, counsels, inspires fear, opens your minds and directs them to the faith."
-- Commentary on Psalm 126, 1
Prayer. Lord, I have asked for only one thing from you, to live in your house all the days of my life, to gaze upon your delight.
