Good morning, we have joined Barry to lead us in today’s Daily Reflections session.
Our Daily Reflection sessions are live on Facebook each weekday at 11am but for those who don’t have Facebook we now have the full recording avaliable over on the St. Mark’s YouTube channel please if you haven’t already subscribe to the channel.
Today, we have done things a little differently. Included in the session, is a worldwide reading of Psalm 23. We will put the video of this along with the reading.
Come to us now, even as your Son came to those first disciples on the shores of Galilee.
Speak your peace to our hearts, touch us with your holy spirit, reveal your word that we may hear your message this day and live as your disciples in the days and years to come
In Christ’s name. AMEN.
Psalm 23, The Lord is my Shepherd
A psalm of David.
The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LordPsalm 23
We then spoke about Archbishop Óscar Romero, who was recently Canonised by the Roman Catholic church.
Archbishop Romero spoke on Psalm 23 in what, tragically, was his final service at his Cathedral in El Salvador.
Let us all view these matters at this historic moment with that hope, that spirit of giving and sacrifice, let us all do what we can. We can all do something.Archbishop Óscar Romero.
Our final prayer came from Psalm 139 which was concluded with our prayer for others and before closing today we joined together saying the Grace
May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all, now and evermore.
