Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 27: 1, 3, 5, 8b-9abc (Commentary) by Florence D’Costa

Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 27: 1, 3, 5, 8b-9abc
1
 The psalm of David before he was anointed. The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear? The Lord is the protector of my life: of whom shall I be afraid? 3 If armies in camp should stand together against me, my heart shall not fear. If a battle should rise up against me, in this will I be confident. 5 For he hath hidden me in his tabernacle; in the day of evils, he hath protected me in the secret place of his tabernacle. 8 My heart hath said to thee: My face hath sought thee: thy face, O Lord, will I still seek. 9 Turn not away thy face from me; decline not in thy wrath from thy servant. Be thou my helper, forsake me not; do not thou despise me, O God my Saviour.

My Views:
I consider this psalm to be so full of faith and so very deep.  David sees God as his light and salvation and he is not afraid.  He also sees God as the protector of his life.  David is not afraid because he believes that God has hidden him in his tabernacle.  Every single verse has such depth and meaning of blinded faith in God.  Well, my dear brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, if we also have the faith of David, God will also be our protector.  He will hide us in His tabernacle where no evil can touch or harm us.  In the days where we experience darkness and trouble, God will be our Light.  He would send his angles to protect us from all terrible danger and evil attacks.  It is important to seek God’s face and to be in His Presence 24 x 7.  To keep our gaze on Christ all the time, would save us from all peril and harm.  When we seek God’s  face all the time, God will be so close to us and He will be our Saviour.  When God is our Saviour, for sure, we will have nothing to fear.  My experience is that God;s love for us is so great that He sent His only Son to save us.  So, when we seek Christ with a sincere heart, Christ will come and dwell within us.  He will bring His Father to dwell in us and we will dwell in Him.  So, we will be safe and secure and no harm, evil or sin can ever touch us.  We when we seek God and when we are in His presence, how can any evil come near God or near His Tent.  Harm, evil and sin can come near us only when we walk away from God’s presence.  But if we stay in God’s Presence and in His Light, we will be safe from harm, evil and sin.  Light, happiness, joy, security and God’s protections will be OURS.

First Reading – 1 Peter 4:7-13 1 June 2018

I personally feel this is a very powerful reading, so please read and meditate on God’s word and I am sure you will surely have a message from God which would encourage you and make you a better person with a purpose in life.

1 June, 2018 – Saint Justin Martyr
First reading 1 Peter 4:7-13 ©
Each of you has received a special grace
Everything will soon come to an end, so, to pray better, keep a calm and sober mind. Above all, never let your love for each other grow insincere, since love covers over many a sin. Welcome each other into your houses without grumbling. Each one of you has received a special grace, so, like good stewards responsible for all these different graces of God, put yourselves at the service of others. If you are a speaker, speak in words which seem to come from God; if you are a helper, help as though every action was done at God’s orders; so that in everything God may receive the glory, through Jesus Christ, since to him alone belong all glory and power for ever and ever. Amen.
My dear people, you must not think it unaccountable that you should be tested by fire. There is nothing extraordinary in what has happened to you. If you can have some share in the sufferings of Christ, be glad, because you will enjoy a much greater gladness when his glory is revealed.
