About Today Readings

St Bonaventure.
Genesis 49:29-33; 50:15-26. Psalm 104(105):1-4, 6-7. Matthew 10:24-38.

Turn to the Lord in your need and you will live — Psalm 104(105):1-4, 6-7.

‘It is enough to grow to be like the teacher.’

When someone inspires us or challenges us to change, or to act, there’s a feeling within that we want to become more like them. We want to emulate their qualities of justice and compassion, their courage in speaking out.

It’s not easy to be a disciple in today’s secular world—even to declare, say, that it’s more important to celebrate the Easter liturgies than to participate in the town’s civil celebrations. But if we’re serious about our faith we want to put into practice what we profess and believe.

We have a God who is with us, involved in all the minutiae of our lives, wanting and waiting to empower us. How delighted our God is when we turn to him, not grudgingly, but wholeheartedly.
