(Sunday Missal, alt)
Let us pray to our Father who is full of compassion: God, may your love revealed in Jesus Christ become the foundation of our lives. May our love for you express itself in our eagerness to do good for others. Grant this through your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
Moses was a compassionate, humble person whose concerns were far larger than his own life (Exodus 32:1-11).
May we be like Moses (and Christ) who interceded for those who caused them grief. May we have an attitude and approach, so when given the chance, we use our available resources and power to be gentle and embody kindness and patience (Philippians 4:4-9). If you feel you have received a “raw deal,” allow the Holy Spirit to form gentleness within you and among us. Allow the Holy Spirit to form Christ within you and among us, so when given the chance to do bad to someone, do good instead!
