GOD’S INCREDIBLE LOVE FOR US. MON. 6/9

LISTEN TO MY VOICE; THEN I WILL BE YOUR GOD AND YOU SHALL BE MY PEOPLE. (Jer 7:23)

What God’s voice tells us is the true story of his incredible love for us.  No other storyteller, however gifted, can paint for us the full, living portrait of who we are and have been, and who we are becoming.  Let us listen attentively, lest we forget and try to remake ourselves according to some other image. (Magnificat)

BE DOERS OF THE WORD and not hearers only, deluding yourselves.  For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his own face in a mirror.  He sees himself, then goes off and promptly forgets what he looked like.  But the one who peers into the perfect law of freedom and perseveres, and is not a hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, such a one shall be blessed in what he does.  (James 1:22-25)

HEAR THE WORD WHICH THE LORD SPEAKS TO YOU, O HOUSE OF ISRAEL. (Jer 10:1)

PRAYER:  O GOD, you have spoken your Word of love, your Son, into our world’s deafness.  Open our ears to hear; open our hearts to heed; open our will to obey, that we may proclaim the good news with our lives, through the same Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen  (Magnificat)
