Daily Reflection

Lord, do not look on our weaknesses or the sins that we may have committed

Lord, do not look on our weaknesses or the sins that we may have committed, but look in loving mercy on the faith, hope and love of Your Church and, with the fire of Your love, make us sincere and faithful disciples of Jesus.

Lord, in my inmost heart teach me wisdom to know that You alone are my hope, my salvation

We may wonder what these historical realities have to do with us in another age, a completely different culture and civilization. If we read these stories as parables of the human condition, we will see ourselves in them, with our own weaknesses, even our search for some kind of salvation, anywhere except in God. Like Israel, all of us must come sooner or later to a realization of the truth: our only hope and salvation is in God.

May God be blessed
