Tuesday of the Sixth Week in Ordinary Time I: Turn Away from the Destructive Forces of Evil
Readings for Mass
But Noah found favour in the sight of the Lord (NRSV, Gen 6:8).
Let us pray.
Lord, how often we read our own sentiments into what we think are your actions. We make you a player within the world responding to situations very much as a human might. Where we might get angry, we have you getting angry. Where we might regret something that we have done, we have you regretting.
We forget, Lord, that your act is one with your being, that you do not choose this or that but you just act. It is we, Lord, who respond to you and not you to us.
In all things, Lord, you are always faithful. In spite of the destruction unleashed by our evil acts, you are always there in your one act offering us forgiveness and a share in your life.
May we, Lord, always turn away from our sinfulness and allow you to fill us again with your grace even as you did at the very first moment in our mother’s womb.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
