Monday 16th Ord I


A Pilgrim's Daily Prayer

Called through the Word to the everlasting journey in the Spirit

from nothingness to union with the One who is the Beginning and the End

Philip Ratner:   Moses Parting the Red Sea

Monday of the Sixteenth Week in Ordinary Time:              Through Water to New Life

Readings for Mass

First Reading: Exodus 14:5-18
Responsorial Psalm: Exodus 15:1-2, 3-4, 5-6
Gospel: Matthew 12:38-42


“But you [Moses] lift up your staff, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it, that the Israelites may go into the sea on dry ground. Then I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians so that they will go in after them; and so I will gain glory for myself over Pharaoh and all his army, his chariots, and his chariot drivers (NRSV, Ex 14:16-17).”

Let us pray.

 

Father, as we remember the story and retell it to our children, you brought Israel out of slavery in Egypt through the sea into physical freedom and then eventually through the Jordan into freedom from the sin left behind in the dessert. In the sacrament of baptism you bring us through death into resurrection and new life in you. May we recognize that at every moment in every time and place, Father, you call every human being through the Word into newness of life in your Holy Spirit, life in which we are challenged to grow at every moment forever and ever.

Through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
