Taste and see: Hope


The first Communion Antiphon from Sunday’s Mass has us turn to the Lord to sustain us in hope.

Remember your word to your servant, O Lord,
by which you have given me hope.
This is my comfort when I am brought low.
Cf. Ps 118: 49-50

There are so many obstacles to the good life for us and others – war, civil disorder, political repression, extremism, personal challenges. But in all we are sustained by the faithfulness of God. These things have been before, but the love of God inspires believers to strive in hope. And sustains us when in our selves we fail.

He is our help, hope and, even happiness.

Today again entrust yourself and those you love and care for to the eternal compassion of God.
