About Today Readings

St John Bosco.
Hebrews 10:19-25. Psalm 23(24):1-6. Mark 4:21-25.

Lord, this is the people that longs to see your face – Psalm 23(24):1-6.

‘Do you bring in a lamp to put it under a bowl or a bed? Instead, don’t you put it on its stand?’

One sign of spiritual growth is an increased self-acceptance. Most of us dread total transparency. Yet under the gaze of God’s love we find that we are willing to bring our dark side out into the open. God’s light heals our darkness. We discover the joy of being forgiven.

Our friendships deepen as we find that we are able to become more transparent in our dealings with people. We receive a new freedom in being able to present ourselves to people as we are rather than as we should be. Once we live out of this freedom, God’s light really starts to shine forth.
