First Tuesday of Passiontide

April 8, 2014

JMJ

Blessed Tuesday!

Entrance Antiphon:

Wait for the Lord; be strong;
be stouthearted, and wait for the Lord!

Collect:
Grant us, we pray, O Lord,
perseverance in obeying Your will,
that in our days the people dedicated to Your service
may grow in both merit and number.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever. Amen.

Readings:
Numbers 21:4-9 (the bronze serpent)
Psalm 102:2-3, 16-21 “O Lord, hear my prayer, and let my cry come to You”
+John 8:21-30 (we must believe in Jesus to be saved)

When we look down
on God
He lets us suffer
from the bite
of our disdain,
to writhe in pain

…until…

we raise our eyes
and realize
that He is not beneath us
but above.
And everything
He does
for us
is Love.

Do I “cut God down to size”?
What happens when I look up to Him?
