About Today Readings

St Anthony of Padua.
2 Corinthians 1:18-22. Psalms 118(119):129-133, 135. Matthew 5:13-16.

Lord, let your face shine on me — Psalms 118(119):129-133, 135.

‘Let your light shine before all that they may see your good works and glorify your Father.’

Once, watching the Australian Open Tennis Championships on television I was particularly edified to hear one of the players give glory to Jesus for his victory. I hope that player kept the same frame of mind when he missed out on the final!

I am sure he did. He would have been a man after the heart of St Paul, who said, ‘There is no Yes and No about what we say to you.’ It was most encouraging to hear someone make a statement like that in a situation that could at times be rather cut‑throat.

Lord, help us to realise that there is no place in the world where the Light of Christ cannot shine.
