About Today Readings

Acts 11:1-18. Psalms 41(42):2-3; 42(43):3-4. John 10:1-10.

My soul is thirsting for the living God — Psalms 41(42):2-3; 42(43):3-4.

‘I have come that you may have life—life in all its fullness.’

Life is not mere existence—even inanimate things exist. The life Jesus intends for each of us is a sharing in the being of God. The life that we receive from the Word we receive is God’s gift through the One who was manifested in him.

Lord, ‘you are unchangeable, yet you change all things. You are new, never old, and yet all things have new life from you.’ Help me to lose myself in you, to find myself in you, ever again, to love you in all. Yes, you have loved all into being. May all your people learn to listen, share with each other and reflect together on their lives in the light of the Gospel. Give me, Lord, only your love.
