Saturday 6th Easter


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 Sixth Week of Easter:                   Growth in the Understanding of the Word

Readings for Mass

First Reading: Acts 18:23-28
Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 47:2-3, 8-9, 10
Gospel: John 16:23-28


Apollos had been instructed in the Way of the Lord; and he spoke with burning enthusiasm and taught accurately the things concerning Jesus, though he knew only the baptism of John (Acts 18:25).

Let us pray.

Father, Apollos began preaching the good news of the gospel even before he had understood the full significance of baptism. The same is true for all of us: our enthusiasm often outstrips our comprehension.

Your Word, now made flesh in our Lord Jesus, is spoken to all of us at the depth of our being at every moment in every place but it is a Word that does not always find even adequate expression in our conscious mind. Help us, Father, through your Word, ever present to us, to grow in understanding that we may more truly live the life to which you call all people.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
