About Today Readings

St Louis IX; St Joseph Calasanz

2 Thessalonians 2:1-3, 14-17. The Lord comes to judge the earth – Psalm 95(96):10-13. Matthew 23:23-26.

O God, you search me and you know me.

There was a small girl who went to stay with her grandmother for a holiday. In the room where she slept there was a text on the wall that said: ‘God is watching you.’ Her grandmother noticed the child seemed reluctant to go to bed and gently questioned her one evening. ‘It’s that picture that says God is spying on me’, she said.

‘Oh, my darling, God isn’t spying! He just thinks you are so wonderful, he can’t keep his eyes off you.’ We know God loves us, and we don’t want to disappoint him. At the end of this psalm, we ask God to know our heart and to guide us in everlasting ways. Lord, this is my prayer.
