Readings for today’s Mass
The Old Testament poet who penned today's Psalm 98 had a quite different understanding of God. Sometimes the ancients' experience of God made him much more approachable. Here are a few of the things the poet celebrates about God: First, he told us we are saved so we sing of his wondrous deeds. His powerful right arm, for us, is a sign of victory over sinfulness. God is just, faithful and kind, so we break into a new song of joy and praise. The God the psalmist knew hardly sounds like someone to cower from.
When next you come to God in prayer, don't worry about what you might say or the posture you assume. Prayer is not always about needs and worldly concerns, It's first about being in the presence of God. Prayers is simply whatever is on your heart directed to the one who can only love you. Children know best how to do it. Take this with you the next time you take a knee.
