About Today Readings

ST BARNABAS.
2 Corinthians 1:18-22. Psalm 118(119):129-133, 135. Matthew 5:13-16.
Lord, let your face shine on me – Psalm 118(119):129-133, 135.
‘You are the salt of the earth.’

Jesus, you are my salt. You bring out the best in me and give me flavour. Sometimes you sting a bit, because in your presence I see the gap between your love and mine. I regret the harm I do: sometimes I hurt people who, deep down, I love. The pain is a sign of a new beginning. You quickly begin to heal those wounds and allow me, refreshed and made whole again, to live ever more fully.

Into the world you send me with the realisation that the Father loves everyone. Lord, may my words and actions today show that you are alive. Touch the people who cross my path, especially the most angry and hurt. Nourish the ones who yearn to be known by you. Renew their lives. Give them courage, give them strength. Pour out your love and grace into all your people’s hearts.
