Pondering St. Hosea

The Prophet Hosea
by Gillis van Coninxloo (1544-1607)

It can be a bit of a struggle to read and grasp Saint Hosea’s insights. Below are a few verses, however, that are good for contemplation and prayer …

For it is love that I desire, not sacrifice.
- Hosea 6:6a

Sow for yourselves justice, reap the fruit of piety.
- Hosea 10:12

Straight are the paths of the LORD, in them the just walk ...
- Hosea 14:10b
