About Today Readings

Dedication of The Basilicas Of Ss Peter and Paul.

Wisdom 18:14-16; 19:6-9. Psalm 104(105):2-3, 36-37, 42-43. Luke 18:1-8.

Remember the marvels the Lord has done – Psalm 104(105):2-3, 36-37, 42-43.

Pray continually and never lose heart.

Then he told them a parable about the need to pray continually and never lose heart.

Dear Lord, what comforting words you use today. We know that prayer does not mean asking all the time but it does mean recognising our need of you and seeing your love and help in every aspect of our lives.

We read those wonderful words in Wisdom that you turned the water into a dry plain and, sheltered by you, a whole nation passed across with the result that your people skipped like lambs singing your praises. Teach us to be so happy and grateful with you in our lives that we skip like lambs even if it has to be metaphoric. Teach us to say thank you continually for all you do for us and to be joyful in your love.
