About Today Readings

Proverbs 21:1-6, 10-13. Guide me, Lord, in the way of your commands – Psalm 118(119):1, 27, 30, 34-35, 44. Luke 8:19-21.

Guide me, Lord, in the way of your commands

It is human nature to want to belong, to be part of the ‘in crowd’. In today’s Gospel there is a simple formula for becoming part of the ‘innest’ crowd of them all – to become brothers and sisters to Jesus all we need to do is to hear the Word of God and put it into practice.

Today’s readings are all concerned with wickedness and virtue. If we follow the Lord’s command and keep God’s law we will find delight, but those who shut their ears to the cry of the poor shall themselves plead and not be heard.
