About Today Readings

Psalter Week IV. 32nd Sunday In Ordinary Time.

Wisdom 6:12-16. Psalm 62(63):2-8. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18. Matthew 25:1-13.

My soul is thirsting for you, O Lord my God — Psalm 62(63):2-8.

‘My soul is thirsting for you.’

We each desire to find God, whether we know that or not. We search for God in the people we meet, in our environment, or perhaps in material possessions or status. Through our searching we will find God. The bridesmaids in Matthew were seeking God by being at the wedding, but, being distracted, they were not prepared for the task. Keeping Jesus in our sights each day helps us to keep on track.

Jesus walks with us, throughout our days. As Paul reminded the people of Thessalonica, living in close contact with Jesus gives us hope, despite all that goes on around us. With conflicts in many countries, and severe climatic disasters, we need to have hope. Living the words— ‘Wisdom is found by those who look for her, be on the alert for her and anxiety will quickly leave you’—our lives will evince joy and hope.
