About Today Readings

St John XXIII.

Galatians 3:1-5. Luke 1:69-75. Luke 11:5-13.

Blessed is the Lord God of Israel; for he has come to his people – Luke 1:69-75.
‘Ask, and it will be given to you …’

The sign of the cross reminds us that God comes down to us and invites us to be in relationship with God, who in turn invites us to be in relationship with all of creation. Our God invites deep connection and relationship – communion. This God of abundant love seeks to shower all of creation with goodness. We are invited to turn to God and to be truly blessed.

Surely our greatest response to God’s love is one of gratefulness and awe. When we choose to live in this way, it in turn inspires generosity and tenderness towards the whole of creation.
