Wednesday 14th 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

Hans Memling: Angel Musicians
Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten, Antwerp, 1480s


Wednesday of the 14th Week in Ordinary Time:                The Glory of Poetry and Music

Readings for Mass
First Reading: Genesis 41:55-57; 42:5-7, 17-24
Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 33:2-3, 10-11, 18-19
Gospel: Matthew 10:1-7


Praise the LORD with the lyre; make melody to him with the harp of ten strings.
Sing to him a new song; play skillfully on the strings, with loud shouts
(NRSV, Psalm 33:2-3).

Let us pray.

Father, you speak your one Word to all of us in every moment but because of our finitude as creatures and because of the influence of the sin of the world and our own sinfulness it is difficult for us to articulate the fullness of truth that you reveal to us. In poetry and music we can often give expression to truth that logical reason cannot always utter. Father, may we find in poetry and music the means to speak when ordinary speech fails and thus give you more adequate praise even while growing in the life and power that you always offer to us.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
