First Tuesday of Passiontide

March 24, 2015

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)

God makes the serpents
in my heart
to manifest
their burning bite
in flesh
to motivate me
to eradicate
them all.

And when I raise my ire
against Him
He transforms it to a flag
and bids me
find in it
the remedy for sin.

He’s going to win.

Is my heart a brood of peevish serpents?
Have I underestimated God’s determination to rescue me from myself?
