Reflection for the 13th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Today’s Responsorial Psalm at Mass is a jewel of a prayer that can resonate in our hearts all through this week. It reads, simply,


You are my inheritance, O Lord. 


Found in Psalm 16, it comes from the heart of King David as a prayer in the night, crying out to God as a song of Trust. He praises God, reminding Him that all his hope is in the Lord, and that nothing can disturb him because God never fails. By calling God his inheritance, He acknowledges that everything comes to him from the Hand of a loving God, and that he knows God will never let him be alone in any trial.


This short prayer is an act of faith, an act of hope and an act of love. Praying these few words is a wonderful way to keep close to God, and to remind ourselves that God is always close to us. Now that’s a win-win situation, isn’t it?


And as for the inheritance, there is no tax involved; just the consolation that we can draw on it whenever we want, and it will never be used up.


You are my inheritance, O Lord. 

God bless you.

Have a prayerful week.
