Fourteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time

Carried

He filled my soul with the
strength of His grace. I cannot express the Lord’s words any more. I have written these words
to record how the Lord’s goodness comforts me in my difficult hours.(Elizabeth) (February 7, 1963)

Today’s Readings: As nurslings, you shall be carried in her arms,
and fondled in her lap;
as a mother comforts her child,
so will I comfort you;
in Jerusalem you shall find your comfort. (Isaiah 66)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, when I read this first reading from Isaiah I picture the Blessed Mother and how She carries us in Her Arms to You if we but trust in Her intercession. Lord it is in You and in Your Church that we find our comfort and our peace. You never abandon us or leave us orphans in our time of need. Lord, there are many people reading this today who may be anxious, worried, upset, or in fear. They may be facing illnesses, family strife, problems and stress at work, loneliness and despair. Lord, let us place all of them and us into Your Mother’s Arms so She can bring us all to You- You are our peace!
