Saturday, 34th Wk: "I, Daniel, found my spirit anguished"

within its covering of flesh, and I was terrified by the visions of my mind.

Theophanies (manifestations of God) light up the way of the promise, from the patriarchs to Moses and from Joshua to the visions that inaugurated the missions of the great prophets. Christian tradition has always recognized that God's Word allowed himself to be seen and heard in these theophanies, in which the cloud of the Holy Spirit both revealed him and concealed him in its shadow.
-- CCC 707
