About Today Readings

DAY OF PENANCE.

Acts 9:1-20. Psalm 116(117). John 6:52-59.

Go out to all the world, and tell the Good News – Psalm 116(117). 

‘And immediately something like scales fell from his eyes.’

For those of us who have grown into faith gradually and over time, Saul’s story of conversion is very powerful. It is such a profound turn-around. God moves in a very decisive way. Saul responds just as decisively, following the instructions he was given without hesitation or question.

Are we listening for God’s voice? If we heard God’s voice what would our response be? We can take heart in the fact that what happened to Saul was so extraordinary that it would appear there was no way he could even question it was God.

The extraordinary can happen in the midst of the very ordinary moments of life. When we pray – give me eyes to see, ears to hear and a heart to respond – let us hope we’re ready for what God might do within us. Great is the hope to which we are called.
