Taste and See: Eternal love and care

Aix 3 044.jpg

May your love be upon us, O Lord, 
as we place all our hope in you.

The word of the Lord is faithful
and all his works to be trusted.
The Lord loves justice and right
and fills the earth with his love.

The Lord looks on those who revere him,
on those who hope in his love,
to rescue their souls from death,
to keep them alive in famine.

Our soul is waiting for the Lord.
The Lord is our help and our shield.
May your love be upon us, O Lord,
as we place all our hope in you.

Responsorial Psalm for the 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Psalm 32(33):4-5,18-20,22

Faith and trust in God develops in this life. In the ups and downs of our experiences.

In his constancy, and as we appreciate the horizon of love and compassion that extends far beyond the immediate moments of our passions, we learn to place trust in God, and to have faith in him.

The final act of faith we can make, in our worldly life, is at the moment of death: ‘Into your hands I comment my spirit.’
