Dancing on the Head of a Pin

There is a legend of St Thomas Aquinas asking "How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?" At this blog we ask all questions dealing with our faith and spirituality. Some are down to earth, rubber meets the road questions, while others are more lofty...like, how many angels can dance on the head of a pin?

Today's Psalm from Morning Prayer

Have mercy on me, O God, for they trample over me; *
all day long they assault and oppress me.
My adversaries trample over me all the day long; *
many are they that make proud war against me.
In the day of my fear I put my trust in you, *
in God whose word I praise.
In God I trust, and will not fear, *
for what can flesh do to me?
All day long they wound me with words; *
their every thought is to do me evil.
They stir up trouble; they lie in wait; *
marking my steps, they seek my life.
Shall they escape for all their wickedness? *
In anger, O God, cast the peoples down.
You have counted up my groaning;
put my tears into your bottle; *
are they not written in your book?
Then shall my enemies turn back
on the day when I call upon you; *
this I know, for God is on my side.
In God whose word I praise,
in the Lord whose word I praise, *
in God I trust and will not fear:
what can flesh do to me?
To you, O God, will I fulfil my vows; *
to you will I present my offerings of thanks,
For you will deliver my soul from death
and my feet from falling, *
that I may walk before God in the light of the living.
