About today


Amos 7: 12-15. Lord, show us your mercy and love and grant us your salvation – Ps 84 (85): 9-14. Ephesians 1: 3-14. Mark 6: 7-13.

The riches of grace with which he showered us

Isn’t it worth stopping every now and then and being grateful for what we have? There are so many ways we can count our blessings. But one gift can sometimes be forgotten: our faith. Today’s reading from the letter to the Ephesians is a long thanksgiving for this “riches” that came to us through Christ, and it is a beautiful poem of praise. We are blessed because we have been chosen and claimed as God’s property, showered with the Holy Spirit and an inheritance of wisdom, insight and freedom. Such gifts alone are not of much use to us. Our faith and blessings are to be shared. And so the apostles in the Gospel proceed with their life-giving mission: healing and conversion of life to God. Let’s do the same today.
