St Louis Grignion de Montfort
Acts 5:27-33. Psalms 33(34):2, 9, 17-20. John 3:31-36.
The Lord hears the cry of the poor — Psalms 33(34):2, 9, 17-20.
Peter speaks out forthrightly.
‘God raised Jesus from death to be our saviour … and we are witnesses of these things.’ Peter probably had heard, and maybe here was unconsciously echoing, John the Baptist’s outspokenness as we hear Jesus speak of it in today’s gospel. ‘He tells what he has seen and heard.’
Jesus, my Lord, I accept you with all my heart. Help me to hold on to that faith. Deepen it. Strengthen it. Forgive my weaknesses and my self-centredness.
