Readings for today’s Mass
In times such as these, while it is good to remember God's faithfulness, it might also be a good time to rededicate ourselves in faithfulness to God's word and covenant. One session of the daily news will tell you we are coming up pretty short of the expectations of the covenant. At a time when we should be taking care of the poor, protecting the widows and orphans, when we should be welcoming the immigrants and strangers, we hear instead of multiple bomb threats, mass shootings, racial, religious, cultural and all kinds of bigotry. We have become a people that breeds hatred and intolerance, that fosters division, violence and self-interest. Whatever happened to our end of the bargain? It seems we are not all the faithful ones who bless the name of the Lord, nor do all our works give thanks to God.
Still, The Lord is faithful in all his words and holy in all his works. The Lord lifts up all who are falling and raises up all who are bowed down. The Lord pays attention to us. Spend some time with the Lord today. Perhaps we can again learn something about faithfulness. It might be time to revisit the covenant.
