Thirty-fourth Friday in Ordinary Time

From the Word of the Day

“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.”

 (Luke 21:33)     

 How should we live this WordJesus_103_small

We are in a very rapid journey.  The heavens with their thousands of stars will pass away.  The earth with its innumerable life forms will pass away.  Jesus announces this sunset of all that does not belong to eternity.  He creates an important background to bring out clearly that which on the contrary will not pass away.   His WORD and therefore all of Scripture, remain forever, like a light that illumines every person who comes into this world.

It is the key to interpret our life on earth that will not be taken away but will be changed absolutely for the better – the splendor of being and of existing.  We must, therefore, trust the Word of God as we follow the cycle each day of the Liturgy of the Mass and of the Divine Office as it is offered to us.

Your Word, O Lord, is the light of truth, the bread that nourishes our mind and our heart.  As St. Paul says, it is also the Spirit’s sword that, in the daily battle against egoism and its passions, can be victorious because it works in me the power of Your being Lord of heaven and of earth.

Today as I pause for silent contemplation, I will relish this Word of God and trust God implicitly, repeating many acts of faith throughout the day.

Jesus, help me to be confident in You who works not only through the Sacraments but also through the victorious sword of Your Word acting against evil both in me and around me. 

The voice of Giorgio La Pira

The Bible is the navigation map for individuals and for peoples.  Therein is found where we come from and where we are going.
