Speak Lord: help us to know what we need and what we don’t.

BLACK-FRIDAY-HELL-570

The First reading for the 18th Sunday of the year, comes from the prophet Isaiah.

It sets before us a wonderful prospect of plenty, available to all who have need.

Thus says the Lord:
Oh, come to the water all you who are thirsty;
though you have no money, come!
Buy corn without money, and eat,
and, at no cost, wine and milk.
Why spend money on what is not bread,
your wages on what fails to satisfy?
Listen, listen to me, and you will have good things to eat
and rich food to enjoy.
Pay attention, come to me;
listen, and your soul will live.
With you I will make an everlasting covenant
out of the favours promised to David.

Isaiah 55:1-3

  • What necessary things does the Lord freely share with you?
  • What’cost’ does the world levy for the things it declares necessary?
