“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Isaiah 55:1

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters;

and you who have no money, come, buy and eat!

Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost.

.

– Isaiah 55:1

REFLECTION…

.

This is the call

that God has made to everyone since the beginning of time.

.

In the Eucharist, which is the banquet of the New Testament,

the words of the prophet come true in the complete sense

in the words spoken by our Lord when He instituted that Sacrament:

Take and eat…take and drink the true bread of life, the fruit of the true vine

– the finest food and drink which money cannot buy…and which give eternal life.

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Lord, Your love is the food of my soul.

I am not worthy of eating and drinking with You,

but I come to You with a contrite heart

and a great desire to sit at Your table.
