About Today Readings

St Clement I. St Columban.
Apocalypse 10:8-11. Psalm 118(119):14, 24, 72, 103, 111, 131. Luke 19:45-48.

How sweet to my taste is your promise! – Psalm 118(119):14, 24, 72, 103, 111, 131.

‘My house shall be a house of prayer.’

Jesus recognised what the father’s mission was for him, but how do we discover what his will is for us? Let us sit quietly before God and allow him to speak to our heart. All Jesus taught are God’s statutes, and these are our counsellors – especially, to love God and our neighbours as ourselves.

The Good Samaritan went out of his way to help a stranger and is the epitome of ‘neighbour’. We are called to the same, not only to those far away but those as close as next door. By allowing God to look on us with love during prayer energises us to move beyond our fears and to reach out to others in need.
