DAILY HOLY MASS READINGS
Genesis 1:1-19, Psalm 104:1-2, 5-6, 10, 12, 24, 35,
My Beloved, at the appointed time the Triune God created the world. From chaos the Father breathed forth His Spirit who hovered over the abyss of nothing and God uttered the Word what was in Him and through that Word willed and called forth light separating it from darkness and there was day and night. He created the sky and separated from the earth, He called forth land and separated it from the water. He called forth the sun and the moon and placed the stars in the sky each in its place the sun for the day the moon and stars for the night and by this the rhythm and order of life would be measured.
God saw all that He created in union with His Spirit and His Word and declared that it was good. Indeed, all that God does is good.
Psalm 104:1-2, 5-6, 10, 12, 24, 35
My Beloved, this is a hymn in praise of all that God has created. We exult and give exuberant praise and thanksgiving to the Creator who called forth creation in all its variety and beauty into existence by uttering His Word in the Breath of His Spirit. Light, oceans, the wind, mountains and hills, the sun, moon and stars, the boundaries of land and seas are all ordered by God our Creator. He created the birds and the trees in which to build their nests, the world teeming with life all ruled by the Word and the Wisdom of the Most High an all was created to give God glory for He is worthy of praise.
My Beloved, as You have stated You came for the sick. Until You came into the world there was no tangible hope. There was hope in the coming of the promised Messiah who would liberated the Jews from foreign oppression but their vision was narrow and nothing at all as God intended the coming of His in the Incarnation to be. You walked across the length and breadth of Israel, You travelled by boat to get across to those who would not otherwise e able to reach You making Yourself available to all. Your fame as a healer and miracle had spread everywhere and wherever You went large crowds followed eager to be healed all wanting to touch even the fringe of Your cloak and indeed ALL WERE HEALED.
Today we receive You in the Holy Eucharist and we become one Body, one Spirit in You and we are healed for God Himself makes His dwelling place in us,
