August 1 – Wednesday

Saint Alphonsus Liguouri, Bishop and Doctor of the Church

Reading 1 – Jer 15:10-21

Responsorial Psalm – Ps 59

God is my refuge on the day of distress

Gospel – Mt. 13:44-46

The Kingdom of heaven is like a treasure buried in a field

Reflection:

God offers his kingdom as incomparable treasure at a price we can afford! We can't pay the full price for the rich and abundant life which God offers us – but when we willingly exchange our life for the life which God offers, we receive a treasure beyond compare. Are we ready to invite God to visit us and live with us today?

Prayer:

Help us Lord that we may always find joy and delight in your presence. Amen
