About Today Readings

St Justin.
Acts 22:30; 23:6-11. Psalms 15(16):1-2, 5, 7-11. John 17:20-26.

Keep me safe, O God; you are my hope — Psalms 15(16):1-2, 5, 7-11. John 17:20-26.

‘In your presence, there is fullness of joy.’

When Paul was called out of his comfort zone to go out to preach the Good News beyond the boundaries of Israel, he responded with a willing heart and his efforts were truly blessed.

We today may not be called as Paul was, but Jesus invites us to spread that joy to all we meet, the joy that can only come from a close relationship with him.

As he approached his death, Paul made a passionate invitation to join the unity of love, experienced by Jesus and his Father, so that we also may enter into that fullness of joy and the world would believe that the Father has sent us. What love have we been offered, to live as the children of God and share this friendship.
