USCCB - (NAB) - December 14, 2007:
Thus says the LORD, your redeemer,
the Holy One of Israel:
I, the LORD, your God,
teach you what is for your good,
and lead you on the way you should go.
If you would hearken to my commandments,
your prosperity would be like a river,
and your vindication like the waves of the sea;
Your descendants would be like the sand,
and those born of your stock like its grains,
Their name never cut off
or blotted out from my presence."
Today's Prayer: With so many 'voices' vying for our attention and each wanting to be 'Lord of our Life'. May we look at each and firmly be able to say as St. John of the Cross did, 'nope' not this...only Jesus is truly worthy to bring us to Him. Only He can deliver on the promises that He makes.
