Isaiah 50: 4-7; Psalm 22; Philippians 2: 6-11; Luke 22:14 -23:56
By Jude Siciliano, OP
Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for
persons on the run. “Faith Book” is also brief enough to be
posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.
From today’s Isaiah reading:
The Lord God is my help; therefore I am not disgraced;
I have set my face like flint,
Knowing that I shall not be put to shame
Like Isaiah’s servant, Jesus too has set his face like flint.
Today he enters Jerusalem. God’s faithful servant has set his
face “like flint,” to do what needed to be done for us. Because
of Jesus’ fidelity we have the grace to live faithful lives of
service. We are willing to face challenges in a new setting,
even though we have faced the same ones so many times before.
So, we ask ourselves:
What daily challenge do I face today in my
attempt to live a faithful Christian life?
What and who give me the strength to do that?
For this strength give thanks.
