The salvation of the just comes from the Lord. — Psalm 37:39
Mass Readings: Genesis 46:1-7,28-30 / Matthew 10:16-23
“Trust in the Lord and do good” (Ps 37:3) isn’t just a simple statement. It’s a good summary of our Christian obligation! In today’s Gospel, Our Lord tells His apostles not to worry when they’re handed over to the authorities: “You will be given at that moment what you are to say.”
As a mother, a grandmother, and a mental health practitioner, I meet people in their joy and in their sorrow and discouragement. What can I possibly say? I’ve learned that sometimes words aren’t the best response. (St. Francis of Assisi said, “Preach the Gospel at all times — if necessary, use words.”) In the hardest times, I can trust the Lord to help, calling to mind the reassurance of the psalmist that “the Lord . . . forsakes not His faithful ones.”
Prayer: Dear Lord, may my words and my actions be a witness of faith.
