Taste and See: Living Word

DSC09254a

Alleluia, alleluia!
Your words are spirit, Lord, and they are life; you have the message of eternal life.
Alleluia!

Gospel Acclamation for the 21st Sunday of Ordinary Time

Printed on the page, voiced and proclaimed by a minister, the words of Scripture can seem just like any old words, bound to flesh and to earth.

And yet, inspired and enlivened by the Spirit of God, they become Christ present for us and speaking to us in the depths of our hearts and being…

They speak of the past in our present, and call us to future glory…
