St Fidelis of Sigmaringen.
Acts 11:19-26. Psalm 86(87):1-7. John 10:22-30.
All you nations, praise the Lord —Psalm 86(87):1-7.
Look at the actions of Jesus and see the presence of God in them.
This was what the people mentioned in today’s Gospel reading were unable to do. And yet it was so simple, because, as Jesus says, all you have to do is look at what he did.
Second, Jesus assures us that he really is close to his followers because he knows them. Since Jesus and the Father are one, the Father too is close to us. And we only need to read today’s first reading to see how much the Spirit is with those who follow Jesus.
So today we pray to be able to see Jesus more and more in the gospel stories and to feel the closeness of the Trinity in all that we do.
