Saturday of the Twenty Seventh Week of Ordinary Time
In The Valley of Decision
Come, if you have time. If you have plenty of it, tell Me. The decision is yours. I respect your free will completely. You flatter Me if you abandon it spontaneously to Me. (Jesus) (April 10, 1962)
Today’s Readings: For near is the day of the LORD
in the valley of decision.
Sun and moon are darkened,
and the stars withhold their brightness.
The LORD roars from Zion,
and from Jerusalem raises his voice;
The heavens and the earth quake,
but the LORD is a refuge to his people,
a stronghold to the children of Israel.(Joel 4)
Prayer Meditation: O Lord we do not have to tell You the times are serious and increasingly scary and sad. The heavens and earth indeed quake as the birth pangs increase in our world (Matthew 24:6-8). But Lord, You are our refuge and our stronghold, an ever present help in time of trouble (Psalm 46). Jesus we trust in You! Lord in these times, in this valley of decision, the decision is ours, may we abandon ourselves completely to You in trust and hope as we pray without ceasing because Your Kingdom is coming! Fiat, thy Will be done!
