About Today Readings

Sts Andrew Dung-Lac and Companions.
Apocalypse 11:4-12. Psalm 143(144):1-2, 9-10. Luke 20:27-40.

Blessed be the Lord, my Rock! – Psalm 143(144):1-2, 9-10.

‘God breathed life into them.’

Today’s Gospel confirms that our God is the God of the living, so our prayer can be a quiet reflection on the being of God.

We could begin with the words ‘Be still and know that I am God’. For each one of us, God is personal, ever close, ever wanting his being and our being to become one living reality. The true nature of our being is a mystery beyond our comprehension; but his will to identify with us is clear.

The psalm for today is confident of this: ‘Blessed be the Lord, my rock and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield in whom I take refuge’. We can place our day-to-day lives lovingly into the hands of God.
