TUESDAY IN HOLY WEEK.
Isaiah 49:1-6. Psalm 70(71):1-6, 15, 17. John 13:21-33, 36-38.
I will sing of your salvation – Psalm 70(71):1-6, 15, 17.
‘I will make you a light to the nations.’
We all know the story of Peter’s betrayal. His heart was in the right place but he floundered when the test came. Even so, what a wonderful example for us to follow. Peter is someone we can all relate to: he had his weaknesses but he overcame them and moved on to be a great leader.
He certainly became a light to the nations. Our call is no less than Peter’s – we are given the mandate of spreading God’s saving power to the ends of the earth. We can start in our own families, neighbourhoods and workplaces, and let it flow forth in abundance into the lands beyond.
Let today be a new beginning for us. If we all dispose ourselves to receive the Spirit today, who knows the difference we will make! May God provide us with his light that we may carry it to all we meet.
