Saturday 12th 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

Saturday of the Twelfth Week in Ordinary Time:                Expect the Unexpected

Readings for Mass

First Reading: Genesis 18:1-15
Responsorial Psalm: Luke 1:46-47, 48-49, 50, 53, 54-55
Gospel: Matthew 8:5-17


The LORD said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh, and say, ‘Shall I indeed bear a child, now that I am old?’ Is anything too wonderful for the LORD? At the set time I will return to you, in due season, and Sarah shall have a son (NRSV, Gen 18:13-14)."

Let us pray.

Father, how difficult it is for us to realize that you are always present to us and that you offer us your life and growth in it at every moment. Angels are messengers but we need no messenger to hear your Word that is always with us and through whom we are immediately in your presence.

Nothing, Father, is too wonderful for you and everything we are and have is gift. All is possible with you and all should amaze us.

Father, may be always be ready to accept the unexpected and, responding to it, allow you to forge in us a future that is truly new and which by your grace we can make our own.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
