Friday after Ash Wednesday
Readings of the Day: RB 13:12-14Mass: Is 58:1-9a; Resp. Ps 51; Mt 9:14-15

A day acceptable to the Lord
loose the bonds of injusticeundo the thongs of the yokelet the oppressed go freebreak every yokeshare your bread with the hungrybring the homeless poor into your housewhen you see the naked, cover themnot turning your back on your own kin
How might these words from the Prophet Isaiah come to life on this Friday after Ash Wednesday? A few ways come to mind: seek to reconcile a broken relationship; invite a neighbor for a meal; contact an estranged family member; spend time with an elderly or lonely person; pray with Psalm 51, the Responsorial Psalm for today’s celebration of the Eucharist. What ways come to your mind?
O Lord, make me know your ways, teach me your paths.(Communion Antiphon, Mass)
