EVEN THEM WILL I BRING TO MY HOLY MOUNTAIN, AND MAKE THEM JOYFUL IN MY HOUSE OF PRAYER: THEIR BURNT OFFERINGS AND THEIR SACRIFICES SHALL BE ACCEPTED UPON MINE ALTAR: FOR MINE HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED A HOUSE OF PRAYER FOR ALL PEOPLE.
3.WHO SHALL ASCEND UNTO THE HILL OF THE LORD? AND WHO SHALL STAND IN HIS HOLY PLACE?
4.HE THAT HATH CLEAN HANDS,AND A PURE HEART:WHO HATH NOT LIFT UP HIS SOUL UNTO VANITY,NOR SWORN DECEITFULLY.
The following is an excerpt from a website that I want to share:
Thomas Merton wrote: "Man is not at peace with his fellow man because he is not at peace with himself. And he is not at peace with himself because he is not at peace with God." Only when we are in communion with God will we be in communion with ourselves and our fellowman. This simple formula summarizes Israel's mission of gathering all peoples in right praise to God on Mt. Zion. Although the world is divided in countless ways, Israel's gathering mission is realistic because Christ, the Messiah, is Lord, and all things will be gathered in himself. For this we wait in joyful hope.
