Taste and See: The Word and the word

istanbul-1-018d

Alleluia, alleluia!
If anyone loves me he will keep my word,
and my Father will love him,
and we shall come to him.
Alleluia!

Jn 14:23

Those who love the Lord and seek to live from the word – which surely includes those who read this blog! – are likely to have taken comfort from the Gospel Acclamation above, sung at Mass yesterday, the Sunday of the 7th Week in Ordinary Time.

Actions have consequences, and not least in our relationship with God. He will never allow our good actions to outdo his goodness!

Our attempts to respond to God’s word are surely met by his love. We are caught up into his Communion of love – his gift, our joy.

  • Where have you been surprised by the generosity of God?

Mosaic, Hagia Sophia. (c) 2002, Allen Morris
