About Today Readings

St Francis Of Assisi

Job 19:21-27. Psalm 26(27):7-9, 13-14. Luke 10:1-12.

I believe I shall see the good things of the Lord in the land of the living – Psalm 26(27):7-9, 13-14.

‘The kingdom of God is very near to you.’

When life is comfortable we can become very material-minded, protective of our creature-comforts, clinging to the things we like. Stir a fire in us, Lord, so that we will not get distracted with less important things. There is great news to be shared, and lived, about the God who lavishes gifts upon us and whose promise to love faithfully is experienced in making life for others.

Show yourself to us as a God who is a community, and help us live that spirit with our neighbour. Grant us the grace to be able to identify our extra baggage. Help us to let go of what holds us back.
