Week II Psalter. Sixth Sunday of Easter.
Acts 10:25-26, 34-35, 44-48. Psalm 97(98):1-4. 1 John 4:7-10. John 15:9-17.
The Lord has revealed to the nations his saving power—Psalm 97(98):1-4.
God does not have favourites.
Today’s first reading reminds us God loves everyone and that the Spirit comes to all who believe. For this we give thanks. It is good to end each day with a brief thanksgiving for what stands out as particularly thanks-worthy. As we more and more thank God for our daily trivia, our heart opens in awareness of the divine smile on so many everyday affairs.
Lord, help me sense your kindness in each little daily benefit; to be more and more appreciative of the marvel of your Son’s unlimited self-giving—even to the opening of his heart upon the cross. Open my heart to an awareness of how much you truly love me.
