About Today Readings

Acts 9:31-42. Psalms 115(116):12-17. John 6:60-69.

What return can I make to the Lord for all that he gives to me? — Psalms 115(116):12-17.

‘Lord, you have the words of eternal life.’

Jesus, we know, as Peter knew, that life without you is empty: that it is you who gives meaning to or very being. Give us the faith to understand and accept your message and to let it work within our life. Help us understand that you are the Holy One from God and that the way to the Father is through you.

Jesus, if we leave you out of our life, it is hollow, a mere noise with no substance. It is not hard to see ourselves in the shoes of Judas, for we can be so self-centred in our day-to-day living.

Give us the grace to follow your Way, and to persevere in that way so that we may never betray you in any circumstance.
