St. Ambrose

Is 30: 19-21, 23-26

Truly, O people in Zion, inhabitants of Jerusalem, you shall weep no more. He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry; when he hears it, he will answer you. Though the Lord may give you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, yet your Teacher will not hide himself any more, but your eyes shall see your Teacher. And when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left, your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” 

He will give rain for the seed with which you sow the ground, and grain, the produce of the ground, which will be rich and plenteous. On that day your cattle will graze in broad pastures; and the oxen and donkeys that till the ground will eat silage, which has been winnowed with shovel and fork. 

On every lofty mountain and every high hill there will be brooks running with water—on a day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall. Moreover the light of the moon will be like the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be sevenfold, like the light of seven days, on the day when the Lord binds up the injuries of his people, and heals the wounds inflicted by his blow.

Walk in The Way

Not long ago, one of our elder Sisters who held positions of considerable influence in our community as well as in various dioceses during her active ministry was asked about her current life in which she volunteers at a retreat house, often washing the dishes for retreatants. Her honest, humble response was “This is my life now.” Sister’s comment has stayed with me these past weeks; I find myself repeating those words amid various tasks in my active ministry.

“This is my life now” — “This is the way; walk in it.” How similar those words are as we consider our Isaian text today. God shows me the way; I am to walk in it, to accept it as my life now, every moment of every day. I open myself to listen and walk that way.

How attentive will I be to walk in The Way today?

Prayer

Creator God, you are the source of all life and motivation.
May we journey in faith and love, rejoicing and eager to serve you.

The Way, the Truth and the Life. Amen.
