About Today Readings

Sts Joachim and Anne.

Jeremiah 2:1-3, 7-8, 12-13. Psalm 35(36):6-11. Matthew 13:10-17.

You are the source of life, O Lord—Psalm 35(36):6-11.

‘The Lord says this: I remember your faithful love.’

We all have times of insight and times of blindness. We move between openness to God’s light and closing ourselves off.

In the moments of blindness, we simply do not ‘get’ what God is saying to us in parables. But in the moments of desire for truth, parables gently reveal to us the face of the God whom we seek. Jesus’ parables were not intended to exclude people, but rather to reveal God.

Jesus also knew that not everyone would be receptive to the Good News.

May we continually open our hearts to God so that we may see and hear the Good News of salvation in our lives.
