On this Sunday we ask for both true freedom and an everlasting inheritance. The first reading is from the Book of Wisdom (9:13-18) and begins, "Who can know God's counsel or who can conceive what the Lord intends?"
That is why we pray, discern, try to listen to what God desires of us. This is important during this month when we are looking at the care of our common home. How can I help? What does God ask of me? Here and now!
