Exodus 14: 30 – 15: 1

Thus the Lord saved Israel that day from the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead on the seashore. Israel saw the great work that the Lord did against the Egyptians. So the people feared the Lord and believed in the Lord and in his servant Moses.

Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song to the Lord: “I will sing to the Lord, for he has triumphed gloriously; horse and rider he has thrown into the sea.

From Slavery to Freedom

Since July 15 we have begun to pray with texts from the Book of Exodus which describes the liberation of Israel from Egypt.  The people of Israel suffered terrible oppression during their years of slavery. The birth of Moses and his call from the Lord all prepare for the liberation of Israel. Today the Israelites complete their passage to freedom and sing a triumphant canticle of joy.

During the chase through the Red Sea, the chariot wheels of the Egyptians became clogged, preventing their pursuit of Israel.  You and I might reflect this mid-summer day on anything that might “clog” our relationship with our God: what lack of honesty, integrity, or other selfish behavior clogs my spirit this week?  What practical steps can I take towards a more open and generous outreach to the Lord and to those I meet today?  What “song of joy” is our God trying to stir in my soul?

If we act like children of God, knowing that he loves us, our lives will be made new, filled with serenity and joy.   –Pope Francis on April 10, 2013

Prayer

Lord, we desire to be one with you; to think like you; to act like you and love like you. Take possession of our life. Change it, transform it, and free it from any darkness that tries to block your light from us. And we will follow you in spite of our limitations and weaknesses.

—Pope Francis, Adapted from Homily, April 10, 2013
