Tuesday of the Seventh Week in Ordinary Time
St. Christopher Magallanes, priest, and companions, martyrs
Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:
Psalm 37:3-4, 18-19, 27-28, 39-40
A reflection on today's Sacred Scripture:
Today's first reading could be a wall plaque. Or a cross-stitched gift. Or even an engraving. It's so beautiful, so true, so wise! Let's revisit just a portion of it for a moment:
You who fear the Lord, wait for His mercy,
turn not away lest you fall.
You who fear the Lord, trust Him,
and your reward will not be lost.
You who fear the Lord, hope for good things,
for lasting joy and mercy.
You who fear the Lord, love Him,
and your hearts will be enlightened.
We are to:
Wait for the Lord's mercy.
Hope for good things.
And if we do? Our "reward will not be lost" and our "hearts will be enlightened." Even if you don't have this on a wall plaque or an engraving, perhaps it's worth jotting these words down and putting them where you'll see them often. Then, when you see them, reflect on their meaning!
