About Today Readings

Week III Psalter. 31st Sunday in Ordinary Time.

St Charles Borromeo.
Deuteronomy 6:2-6. Psalm 17(18):2-4, 47, 51. Hebrews 7:23-28. Mark 12:28-34.

I love you, Lord, my strength – Psalm 17(18):2-4, 47, 51.

‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart.’

We are created in the image of God. All the thoughts and actions that make up our life, making each of us the special creature we are, are humbly offered to our creator. As a total act of love, our whole selves are offered to God.

Let us make our own the Suscipe prayer of St Ignatius – ’Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, my entire will…’

When we make this prayer, we acknowledge the gift of our self, but also our ability to cooperate with our creator in love. ‘Give me only your love and your grace, that is enough for me.’
