Ps 105:16-17,18-19,20-21

R. (5a) Remember the marvels the Lord has done.
When the LORD called down a famine on the land
and ruined the crop that sustained them,
He sent a man before them,
Joseph, sold as a slave.
R. Remember the marvels the Lord has done.
They had weighed him down with fetters,
and he was bound with chains,
Till his prediction came to pass
and the word of the LORD proved him true.
R. Remember the marvels the Lord has done.
The king sent and released him,
the ruler of the peoples set him free.
He made him lord of his house
and ruler of all his possessions.
R. Remember the marvels the Lord has done.

Remembering God’s Marvels

“Remember the marvels the Lord has done.”

Today’s responsorial psalm reminds us that, often, we walk through the world and don’t pay much attention to the little things around us. We see somebody, and we don’t think about how God carefully made them and placed them into the world. We don’t think about how each person we encounter has an impact on our lives, and we often don’t think about the impact we have on them.

In our daily lives, things often happen too quickly for us to be thinking about the beauty of the human person at all times. But it is an important idea to keep with us, and we should allow it to guide our decisions.

Today, take a moment, and look at a person whom you know. What is a side of them that you don’t normally consider, but is actually quite admirable and beautiful? Today, try to find God’s marvelous work within someone else.

Prayer

Christ in me,
Christ before me,
Christ behind me
Christ within me,
Christ beneath me,
Christ above me,
Christ on my right,
Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down,
Christ when I sit down,
Christ when I arise,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.

I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through belief in the Threeness,
Through confession of the Oneness
of the Creator of creation.

—from “The Breastplate of St. Patrick”
