About Today Readings

ST JOSEPH THE WORKER.

Acts 5:17-26. Psalm 33(34):2-9. John 3:16-21.

The Lord hears the cry of the poor – Psalm 33(34):2-9. 

‘God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son.’

To offer his only Son was indeed the greatest gift of love on God’s part. When we realise that this love was freely given, the magnitude of it all hits home to us. Attached to this gift was God’s promise that ‘whoever believes in him may not die but may have eternal life’. Jesus is sent not as judge but as Saviour.

To reap the reward of God’s promise, we, on our part, are to believe in Jesus as Son of God. When we attend to the presence of Jesus, he leads us away from darkness – we come to live in the light he creates. Listening to him shines a light for our path, a bright torch shining even under cover of darkness.

Lord God, we pray for the grace of ongoing belief in Jesus as the one who is leading us to light and life.
