Monday 17th 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

Domenico Beccafumi: Moses and the Golden Calf, Duomo, Pisa, 1536-37

 

Monday of the Seventeenth week in Ordinary Time I:       God Forgives All

 

Readings for Mass
First Reading: Exodus 32:15-24, 30-34
Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 106:19-20, 21-22, 23
Gospel: Matthew 13:31-35

 

So Moses returned to the Lord and said, ‘Alas, this people has sinned a great sin; they have made for themselves gods of gold. But now, if you will only forgive their sin (NRSV, Exodus 32:31-32a).'

 

Let us pray,

 

Father, how often, in the aftermath of grievous sin, we wonder if forgiveness is possible.  No matter how many times we turn away from you, Father, you are always there in your Word offering us your forgiveness in the Holy Spirit even before we request it.  May we always be responsive to this gift so freely given without demand for payment.  And as you offer us your forgiveness may we learn as well to forgive ourselves and those who sin against us.

 

Through Christ our Lord.  Amen
