June 9, Tenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
I will praise you, Lord, for you have rescued me. — Psalm 30:2
Mass Readings: 1 Kings 17:17-24/Galatians 1:11-19/Luke 7:11-17
The Days After
In today’s second reading Paul describes his conversion and is careful to point out what happened next. He didn’t spring into action as the great missionary apostle but went to Damascus and then, after three years, to Jerusalem. That was when he met with some of the apostles.
Any big shift in our lives, whether chosen by us or thrust upon us, can take time to absorb, to consider, to figure out, to prepare and educate ourselves for what comes next. College, a new job, marriage, children, divorce, illness, the death of a loved one . . . Our lives are filled with new chapters that are best met with courage and patience. We can’t suddenly know the ins and outs amid all the adjustments and changes. Over time, with time, the blessings and the graces will come.
Prayer: Dear God, change me so I better accept change!
