Readings for Mass

Responsorial Psalm: Daniel 3:52, 53, 54, 55, 56
Second Reading: Second Corinthians 13:11-13
Gospel: John 3:16-18

The Lord descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name, “The Lord (Ex 34:5).”

Let us pray.

Father, you reveal yourself to every human being at every moment in every place, speaking to us at the depth of our being, closer than we are to ourselves, through the Word, offering us life in your Holy Spirit in every situation.

Because of the sin of the world, the combined evil of all of humanity pressing in upon us, and because of our own sinfulness, we grasp only with great difficulty the reality of your presence to us and the Word that you speak to us. Moses and the Israelites experienced you in a special way at Mount Sinai but your truth is available to us all at every moment if we would only allow it to break through.

Father, may our minds be ever open to your Word and our wills ready to accept the great life to which you call all of humanity.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen
