Rejoice, O hearts the seek the Lord. — Psalm 105:3
Mass readings: Acts 3:1-10 / Luke 24:13-35
There’s happy and distressing news in today’s first reading for those of us who aren’t rich, rich, rich. It’s Peter’s example when he and John come upon the “man crippled from birth”: “I have neither silver nor gold, but what I do have I give to you.” The happy news is we don’t have to be wealthy to help others. The distressing news is we can’t let our lack of wealth be an excuse for not helping others. And the truth is, all the money in the world won’t buy what some people need; it may be what only we can give them.
A loved one with an incurable disease needs a gentle caregiver. An “outcast” at work or the parish needs a kind word and compassionate listener. Someone in our life needs what we can give today.
Prayer: Dear Lord, help me better see and serve those in need.
