Today’s Readings

No excuses

If only I had more money, more time, more assistance, more talent. We all have a pretty impressive laundry list of why we can’t be of more service to God and to others. Even Saint Paul had his “thorn in the flesh,” some private difficulty that seemed to hold him back from being the apostle he sought to be. Paul kept praying for its removal so he could be free of this impediment. Finally he reinterpreted the thorn: not an impediment, but an opportunity to let God be God. Maybe it’s time to stop protesting and start serving!

Today’s readings:Ezra 2:2-5; 2 Corinthians 12:7-10; Mark 6:1-6a (101).

“My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.”

Prepare the Word
