Lectio: Thursday, Twenty-Second Week in Ordinary Time
Readings of the day: RB Prol. 45-50; Colossians 1:9-14; Resp. Psalm 98; Luke 5:1-11
One of the most beautiful verses in all the Holy Rule is the penultimate one of the Prologue: “As we progress in this way of life and in faith, we shall run on the path of God’s commandments, our hearts overflowing with the inexpressible delight of love.” Just thinking about this brings a smile to my face and puts a bounce in my step. With heart bursting, then, to whom will I reach out in love today—someone who is troubled or anxious, or someone with whom I am in conflict, or someone who just needs me to listen. How about you?
Living and true God, strengthen us in faith and grant us the grace to follow your commandment of love. Amen.
