Lunch at St. Joe's

Just got back from Mass and lunch at St. Joe's. The Old Testament reading was from Numbers, a strange reading unfamiliar to me, in which the people were criticizing Moses' marriage to a Cushite woman. Miriam and Aaron were particularly opposed to the whole thing. But then the LORD summons them to the Tent of Meeting, and Miriam is struck with leprosy (and is later healed when Moses pleads to God on her behalf. A compelling story about many things: family, jealousy, and the mystery of God's ways.
