July 13, 2024 Saturday of the Fourteenth Week in Ordinary Time
Memorial of Saint Henry
Daily Readings: Isaiah 6:1-8; Matthew 10:24-33

In the first reading, Isaiah’s vision of God’s throne reminds us of the majesty and holiness of God. His responds to the encounter with humility and reverence, as he acknowledges his own sinfulness and unworthiness in the presence of God.

In the gospel, Jesus says, “Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28). This statement recalls that our ultimate security and comfort come from God alone, and that we can trust Him even when we are uncertain about our own abilities.

The magnitude of God’s presence is not just about being overwhelmed by His majesty, but also about being entrusted with a responsibility to represent Him in the world. We are called and sent by the majestic God who is with us always. Do we feel His presence? It is a privilege and honour to be a prophet, disciple, priest, nun, and Christian.

On seeing the situation in the world today, like persecution, war, calamities, attacks, inhuman treatments, diseases and etc., we are afraid and fear overpowers us. In these conditions, the consolation from Jesus is that “Do not fear, I am with you”.  

Call to Action for Catholic Living:Trusting in the providence of God of God, seeking His guidance, following His words, discerning and obeying His will, believing the presence of God with us help us to overcome fear and live the Christian life to the utmost.
