The artist Rublev composed a drawing called “The Trinity” based on the first reading today. Abraham saw three men standing near him and a meal was prepared for them. Notice in the drawing there is room at the table for another guest – this is done deliberately! Each of us is invited to join in the celebration and be nourished. Only this time the meal is our Mass and we are invited into friendship with God throughout our lives. This is what religion is about – friendship with God. The readings at all masses and all of our church guidelines are repeating the invitation to enter into the flow of love from God to each of us. It is good to pause each day and say – thank you Jesus for offering friendship – help me to recognise this great privilege and fill my life with an abundance of joy.
Prayer for World Elder Abuse Awareness Day:
Gracious God, we ask you to bless especially your children who have grown old. When they can no longer care for themselves, send them loving caretakers who appreciate their wisdom and the richness of their experience. Send your angels to keep them safe as long as they live and to lead them home to you when their work is done. Bless the families of the elderly with insight and good judgment. Send your Holy Spirit to help them make wise decisions and grant them the patience to care for those who once cared for them. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
