Readings for today’s Mass
That’s what those in exile are doing in today’s first reading. They recognize where they have sinned against God and how they have turned their back on him. This is a common theme in the Old Testament. We frequently see God’s people going back to their old ways, worshipping other gods, committing crimes against each other, and forgetting how God saved them from slavery in Egypt. We too can be like those Old Testament people, forgetting God’s goodness in our lives by hurting others and turning away from Him.
Just like the Old Testament exiles, we too must come before the Lord admitting to our sins, seeking healing, forgiveness, and mercy. And do you know what? He gives it to us! Without question!
Sit down today and have an honest examination of the areas in your life where you struggle. Lay it all before the Lord. Maybe seek healing in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Move out of exile by turning back towards God and His never-ending mercy.
