Scripture Readings: Isaiah 45: 6c-8, 18, 21c-25
“Let justice descend, O heavens, like dew from above,
like gentle rain let the skies drop it down.“
We often think of God’s justice negatively, but justice orders things and restores peace. The prophet Isaiah reminds us that God’s work of justice can also be gentle and refreshing.
+Pray for the Lord to renew and refresh your heart, your relationships, and your life by restoring them to order.
St. Mary di Rosa (1813-1855) served God with remarkable courage, even opening the door to invaders during a war and turning them back with a crucifix and her fierce faith as she protected the sick and the sisters with whom she served. She tackled one need after another applying her intelligence, her energy, and her love toward those in need beginning with her parish when she was seventeen, to poor girls in a work house during her 20’s, and finally the sick in hospitals. May we put all of our energy toward the work of Christ before us today.
