About Today Readings

St Juan Diego Cuauhtlatoatzin

Isaiah 41:13-20. The Lord is kind and merciful; slow to anger, and rich in compassion – Psalm 144(145):1, 9-13. Matthew 11:11-15.

I, the Holy One of Israel, am your redeemer

‘I am the Lord your God; I will strengthen you and tell you, “Do not be afraid; I will help you”.’

This is God talking to us. No-one less than the Creatorof the universe. We are the created ones, we belong, we all have a spark of God in us, God’s DNA so to speak, and we are protected and loved by this God. More than ever in the world today, we need to breathe in this fact, and let the wonder of our spiritual ancestry calm and encourage us.

We may be small and weak, but what does that matter, when in the face of anything and everything, our God reigns strong and beautiful, sheltering us and transforming us.
