About Today Readings

St Stanislaus.

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. Also we are to turn away from darkness by doing what is true and so come to the light. Obedience to God is the way to the light and away from darkness.

Lord God, we pray for the grace of ongoing belief in Jesus as Son of God and the grace of perseverance in truly seeking the light.
