About Today Readings

Romans 8:12-17. Psalm 67(68):2, 4, 6-7, 20-21. Luke 13:10-17.

Our God is the God of salvation — Psalm 67(68):2, 4, 6-7, 20-21.

‘The Spirit is the Spirit of the children of God.’

Thank you, Father, for the wonderful gift of the Spirit in our lives. It is only through such grace that we are drawn along the way to you. All our hopes and dreams, all our striving, are part of a deeper cry. Abba, Father, all we need is to be a child before you. We need to know that we are dependent and needy, with nothing to give but our own heart.

Like the child who can say that the emperor has no clothes, help us to see the truth and to say it, to be true to ourselves and to others. We can rationalise away so much injustice. Help us to accept our limits and our responsibilities, so that we might help untie the bonds of falsehood and injustice wherever we find them.
