About Today Readings

Isaiah 11:1–10. Justice shall flourish in his time, and fullness of peace for ever – Psalm 71(72):1–2, 7–8, 12–13, 17. Luke 10:21–24.

Regeneration and reconciliation

Today’s reading from Isaiah presents an attractive set of images of regeneration and, in turn, reconciliation. The shoot that shall come ‘from the stock of Jesse’ will in turn be a source of growth. As things are put right, the ‘wolf shall live with the lamb’. Jesus is this shoot, this offer of reconciliation — an offer of relationship, as the Son draws us back in to relationship with the Father. Are you open to this relationship today?
