(Saint Eusebius of Vercelli, Bishop; Saint Peter Julian Eymard)
; Matthew 13:44-46
After 40 days and 40 night, Moses came back to the people of Israel with new tablets. He was somewhow pale an paleness attributed by the writter of Exodus as a glorious paleness. However, dermatologist explain it as a result of the 40 days hunger and desert sun. The writter of Exodus theologise it as a radiant of conversing with God.
Moses pronoused to them the Ten Commandments and again due to the desert sun, covered his pale face. Moses will remain like that and only uncovering it when he enters the Tent. Going back to the theogising, when a person is at peace with God is radiated by the brilliant glory of God. This glory is seen through the beautiful eversmiling face. An angry face cannot be lightened.
If the presence of God can make a dull soul brilliant, why shouldn’t we struggle searching for it no matter what the cost. This is a treasure, it is a pearl that we have to sacrifice all we have to posses it.
