December 6 – Thursday
Thursday of the First Week of Advent
Gospel: MT 7:21, 24-27
The Lord is the everlasting Rock, says the prophet Isaiah, so trust in the Lord for ever. “For he has brought low the inhabitants of the height; the lofty city he lays low.”. But the faithful ones, on the other hand, can say, “he sets up victory like walls and bulwarks…we have a strong city” (Isaiah 26). Any moment now, he’s going to come and surround us with protection.
If we are listening to Jesus’ words let us ask him to help us put them into practice like the wise builder in the Gospel.
Prayer: (all together)
Father, I dedicate every area of my mind, will and emotions to You. Help me to trust you my “everlasting Rock” and let my daily life become an example of Your goodness. Amen
