About Today Readings

St Alphonsus Liguori.

Jeremiah 15:10, 16-21. Psalm 58(59):2-5, 10-11, 17-18. Matthew 13:44-46.

God is my refuge on the day of distress—Psalm 58(59):2-5, 10-11, 17-18.

‘Your word was my delight and the joy of my heart.’

Jesus, in his parables of the kingdom of heaven, assures us that the result of our search for him is like the joy of finding treasure of great value – which is worth more than anything this world has to offer. So why look for pleasure in the offerings of this world?

We need to place our ambitions, greed and attachment to possessions at the feet of the Lord. There, we can look carefully at our lives and see anew how to praise.

May our one desire be God’s kingdom – the incomparable experience of living in God’s abounding love.
