In today's readings the Apostles were thrown in jail by the Sadducees, but God sent an angel to release them so that they could.................go to the beach? No! So they could go preach in the temple area.

In today's Psalm we read that God hears the cry of the poor. He will deliver you from all your fears............but not so that life will be made easy for you. No, He delivers you to fulfill His great purpose for you and for all, so that you and all who meet you may come to know Him more deeply. This is why he delivered the Apostles from prison. Not so they could go have a vacation somewhere, but so that they could fulfill His purpose for them by preaching the Gospel.

In today's Gospel we see how important it is that we prefer to live in the light of truth rather than in the darkness of shame and evil. God condemns those who do not believe in Him -- those who do not walk toward the light of truth. He has not promised an easy life for us, but He has promised to free us from all evil if we seek His light always.

God bless you.

Love from Lisa
