This morning at mass, the Gospel acclamation was as follows:

Alleluia, Alleluia. I wait for the Lord, my soul waits for his word. Alleluia, alleluia.

As the Deacon holds up the Gospels in preparation for reading, I was just holding my breath, waiting for him to proclaim the living Word of God. Think about the acclamation. We wait for Christ in his Second coming, but even more immediately his presence in the Eucharist, but our souls are dying to hear him proclaimed through the Gospel, which is the Word of God, which is Him!

"Who else shall we go to? We know you have the words of Life!"
