Taste and See: Salvation

Mary and Jesus, PortsmouthSunday was the 6th Sunday of Easter, and at Mass that day, the Church sang as a responsorial psalm in praise of the Lord’s salvation of his people.

The Lord has shown his salvation to the nations. or Alleluia!

Sing a new song to the Lord
for he has worked wonders.
His right hand and his holy arm
have brought salvation.

The Lord has shown his salvation to the nations. or Alleluia!

The Lord has made known his salvation;
has shown his justice to the nations.
He has remembered his truth and love
for the house of Israel.

The Lord has shown his salvation to the nations. or Alleluia!

All the ends of the earth have seen
the salvation of our God.
Shout to the Lord, all the earth,
ring out your joy.

The Lord has shown his salvation to the nations. or Alleluia!

Psalm 97:1-4

Many years ago I was host for a Taize group meeting in London for a December International Meetings. One day we were invited on a Kingdom walk – to walk th local streets looking for signs of the Kingdom. They were found in all sorts of places, schools dedicated to the care of the young; doctor’s surgeries; acts of kindness witnessed.

  • Where are those signs are around you today?
  • Where are they in what you do today?
  • Where might the Lord Jesus be asking you to give signs of his love today?
