Readings for today’s Mass
It's a good time for today's reading from the prophet Jeremiah that contrasts the result of freely chosen behaviors. Recall two weeks ago when we heard God's voice from a reading from Deuteronomy. God was establishing a covenant with the people and said: See, I have today set before you life and good, death and evil. The metaphor of today's reading offers a more descriptive look at what awaits us, depending on which we choose, whether we remain faithful to the covenant or not. Down one road there is a barren desert. Down the other, a verdant garden, an earth filled with life and good things.
Everyday we stand at a fork in the road and have to choose. If you are like most of us, you don't always choose the same path. As part of your Lenten journey to goodness and life, be more aware of how the Lord is trying to lead you. Each day, find time to spend with Ps. 23. In light of today's readings, it will be a good source of reflection. This will get you started:
The Lord is my shepherd;
In green pastures he makes me lie down; to still waters he leads me;
He guides me along right paths for the sake of his name.
