About Today Readings

Sts John De Brébeuf, Isaac Jogues and Companions

Romans 4:13, 16-18. Psalm 104(105):6-9, 42-43. Luke 12:9-12.

The Lord remembers his covenant for ever – Psalm 104(105):6-9, 42-43

‘The Lord remembers his covenant forever’

Faith is unfashionable in our modern society. These days it seems there is a rational, logical explanation for just about everything. We like to think we have complete control over our destinies. Today’s readings remind us of the value of hope, faith and trust in God’s care for us.

Abraham’s story is just one of many stories in our tradition where one person’s faith leads to the most unlikely of outcomes. Do we believe in a God who calls into existence things that do not exist? A God who gives life to the dead? Do we trust that the Holy Spirit will teach us what we need to know?

Dare we imagine a future beyond our own dreams? What might God’s dream be for me? In humility, let us turn to our God with reverence, praying for the grace of a new attentiveness to the movements of the Holy Spirit.
