Lord, do teach us to find You even in the coronavirus and other crises.

Lord, do teach us to find You even in the coronavirus and other crises

Sunday 9th August 2020
19th Sunday in Ordinary Time (A)
1 Kgs. 19:9,11-13; Ps. 84:9-10,11-12,13-14; Rom. 9:1-5; Mt. 14:22-33
(Ps Wk III)           

This story of Elijah has a very important religious message, but one which has a very significant opposite. For Elijah, the Lord was in the gentle breeze, as Psalm 46:10 encourages us: “Be still and know that I am God”.

Interior silence is a special factor of true spirituality. Elijah's story affirms “the Lord was not in the wind"; "the Lord was not in the earthquake”; “the Lord was not in the fire”. Yet St Ignatius has taught us to find God in everything, or as some spiritual masters prefer to interpret it: God can find us in anything.

In our somewhat fragile world, so broken up by our human abuse, we do well to reflect: can God be for us in the earthquake, the typhoon, the fire, the tsunami, the coronavirus?

Lord, do teach us to find You even in the coronavirus and other crises.
