The Responsorial Psalm held my attention today. This is the verse from Psalm 34 that I prayed over:
"Look to him that you may be radiant with joy, and our faces may not blush with shame.
When the poor one called out, the Lord heard, and from all his distress he saved him."
Sometimes a line from Scripture will jump out at us and that is what happened when I read
"Look to him that you may be radiant with joy"
God wants us to be joyful even in the midst of a pandemic. How is this possible?
I leave each of us to work that out for yourself, with the help of the Holy Spirit. I do think that finding God in pray makes me joyful.
