About Today Readings

Week I Psalter. 21st Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Joshua 24:1–2, 15–18. Psalm 33(34):2–3, 16–23. Ephesians 5:21–32. John 6:60–69.

Taste and see the goodness of the Lord—Psalm 33(34):2–3, 16–23.

‘We too shall serve the Lord, for he is our God.’

Simon Peter wants to cling to the Lord. He feels strength and courage in Jesus’ presence. He finds life in Jesus’ words. Indeed, perhaps he feels a burgeoning sense that he is experiencing greater life and vitality ever since he began journeying with Jesus.

Isn’t it the same for us? We desire to call on the Lord when we are in need. When we experience joy in God’s presence we want to sing hymns and songs of praise.

Throughout our life we journey with Jesus and in our pilgrim walk we find an invitation to fullness of life.
