Taste and See: Living by gladness and joy

Assembly

The Collect, the opening prayer, of Mass on Sunday asks for clarity of mind and purpose in the faithful of God.

O God, who cause the minds of the faithful
to unite in a single purpose,
grant your people to love what you command
and to desire what you promise,
that, amid the uncertainties of this world,
our hearts may be fixed on that place
where true gladness is found.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

To do the will of God is this – to love what he commands and desire what he promised.

If we dare to go beyond that, let it be to try to love as he loves, and desiring for others what God has promised them, serve our brothers and sisters.
