Wednesday 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

  Sir James Thornhill: Paul Preaching in the Areopagus
Royal Academy of Arts, London, 1729-31

 

Wednesday of the Sixth Week of Easter:  Called to be Living Witnesses

Readings for Mass
First Reading: Acts 17:15, 22--18:1
Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 148:1-2, 11-12, 13, 14
Gospel: John 16:12-15


“When they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some scoffed; but others said, ‘We will hear you again about this (NRSV, Act 17:32).”

Let us pray.

 

Father, when Paul arrived in Athens, he went directly to the Areopagus, and, speaking to the people gathered there, began to make a reasoned appeal about the good news and of Jesus’ resurrection. Those listening would have none of it. Paul made only a few converts. Yet, Father, when Barnabas went to Antioch, because he presented himself, not bubbling over with arguments, but as a man of the Holy Spirit and of faith, a large number came to believe.

Father, help us to bear witness to you, not so much by our logic which appeals to reason, as by our lives that testify to the transformation that occurs by accepting your life into our own. It is thus that we can truly bear witness to you and share in the one mediation of the Word always present to all of our sisters and brothers.

Through Christ our Lord.  Amen
