Taste and See: the strength of love

Mother of God, Mother of the Church.jpg

I love you, Lord, my strength.

I love you, Lord, my strength,
my rock, my fortress, my saviour.
My God is the rock where I take refuge;
my shield, my mighty help, my stronghold.
The Lord is worthy of all praise,
when I call I am saved from my foes.

I love you, Lord, my strength.

Long life to the Lord, my rock!
Praised be the God who saves me,
He has given great victories to his king
and shown his love for his anointed.

I love you, Lord, my strength.

Responsorial Psalm for the 30th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Psalm 17:2-4,47,51

How importance is that place of security, and the relationship that provides it and is nourished by it.

In his relationship with God the psalmist flourishes and becomes a means for the flourishing of others too.

The Church recognises her privilege in his words – for she too finds her strength and her security in the Lord. She also finds her her mission, to be mother for the world, to draw others to the source of the fullness of life, to God; and to promote the health of the world by echoing the love of God in her service of the most vulnerable.
