About Today Readings

Job 38:1, 12-21; 40:3-5. Psalm 138(139):1-3, 7-10, 13-14. Luke 10:1316.

Guide me, Lord, along the everlasting way – Psalm 138(139):1-3, 7-10, 13-14.

‘Which is the way to the home of the Light?’

There is a strong tone of rebuke in this reading from Luke. The image of sackcloth and ashes is invoked, and a call to repentance is issued to whole cities. But, there is a deeper message of invitation here.

A life without Christ, a life without God is the most severe punishment, and so in fact there is a choice and invitation extended in the words of this Gospel from Jesus: ‘Whoever rejects me rejects the one who sent me’.

We all have those times when we turn away. Let us look at ways in which we are rejecting God in our lives and invite him back in. Let us return to the presence of the Lord into our hearts.
