Today is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception – a Feast of Mary. We look to her as a model in the way she responded to God’s call. She listened to God’s word, believed in its’ blessing, and thus acted on it, trusting that God would be there for her and see her through.  Her words:

Be it done to me according to your word.
– Luke 1:37

Might I have that kind of trust.

Waiting for God Takes Courage

Thursday’s Responsorial Psalm is from Psalm 27

“I believe that I shall see the bounty of God
in the land of the living.
Wait for the God with courage;
be stouthearted, and wait for God.”

How right it is to say that waiting for God takes courage,
because, really, what I would like to do is run ahead.

How about you?

May we be as courageous as the tender flower as it faces the elements.

Trusting that our God Walks with Us

We trust that our God walks with us on the path even when the way is not clear

Friday’s reading is from the 14th chapter of the Prophet Hosea.

Let the one who is wise understand these things;
let the one who is prudent know them.
Straight are the paths of the LORD,
in them the just walk,
but sinners stumble in them.

The Lord is my Light

Friday’s responsorial Psalm is from  Psalm 27

The LORD is my light and my salvation;
whom should I fear?
The LORD is my life’s refuge;
of whom should I be afraid?

The Lord is my Light

Let Our Feet Not Falter

From today’s Responsorial Psalm 37:

The mouth of the just one tells of wisdom
and the tongue utters what is right.
The law of God is in the heart of such a one,
so that the foot does not falter.

May her foot not falter.
