"Since you cannot do good to all, you are to pay special attention to those who, by the accidents of time, or place, or circumstances, are brought into closer connection with you."Dave also makes a daily reflection on his web site and I wanted to repost it here for people to read and ponder.
- St. Augustine
I couldn't help but notice a theme of 'trust' that runs through the readings at Mass today. The first reading, taken from Genesis chapter 28, tells the story of Jacob experiencing the living God which made him exclaim, 'Truly the Lord is in this spot, although I did not know it.' The Responsorial Psalm is a bit more obviously about trust, with the proclamation 'In You, O God, I place my trust.' (from Psalm 91). Then in the gospel we read of the beautiful story of the woman who had suffered with hemorraging for twelve years, who knew that if she was only able to touch the hem of Jesus' cloak, that she would be healed. She did and she was.
Today we hear so much about hectic schedules, stressed out lives, busyness, craziness, self-help programs, ways to be healthier, take control of our lives, be more purpose-filled. Blah, blah, blah. Is there any doubt to the true believer that all these things and much more will come to each of us to the degee that we turn over our lives to God and trust totally in Him?
