“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 2 Chronicles 29:27,30

TODAY’S WORD…

.

As the offering began,

the people sang praise to the Lord,

and the musicians began to play the trumpets and all the other instruments. […]

So everyone sang with great joy as they knelt and worshipped God.

REFLECTION…

.

What exuberance!

.

Note the liveliness

in the manner in which the delight of knowing the Lord

was expressed by the faithful in their songs of praise and worship!

What joy!

.

If only we can be more like this when we meet together in the house of the Lord

on Sundays, for the sacrifice of Holy Mass.

.

Do I sing those songs meaningfully, and with joy in my heart?

.

Do I do my best to express my joy in the Lord?

.

Do I realise,

do I believe…

that God is actually listening to my song, and to my words?

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

My Lord and my God, I believe in You

and I am truly glad and privileged to know You.

.

Lord, help me put everything behind me

when I come into Your house on Sundays.

.

Help me, Lord, fully realise

the beautiful significance of the sacrifice of the Mass.

.

Lord, help me be filled with a special joy

in the glory of Your presence, my God,

as I declare my true belief in You

and acknowledge Your love for me.

.

Lord, I want to sing to You

and praise and worship You with fitting joy in my heart.

.

I love You, Lord. You make me glad!
