WHO RESCUES US?
 
I will bless the Lord at all times. God is close to us the broken hearted; when we are crushed in spirit God saves us.
 
In today’s first reading from the Book of Wisdom is a fairly familiar Scripture to us Catholics from its frequent use in funeral Masses. Very few places in the Hebrew Scriptures express so strongly a belief in an afterlife. And that is one of the great consolations our faith offers to those grieving over the loss of loved ones and friends. Wisdom embraces the idea that we human beings have an immortal part - “imperishable,” which comes from the author today. Our immortal part is made in the image of God our Father. Wisdom says, think that the goodness of believers is a waste of time but, the Book says, they are in peace: “yet is their hope full of immortality.” We as believers counter the idea that the material world alone is real by trust and confidence that God’s love for us extends beyond this short span of life.
 
Hope and trust can only make sense if you and I believe that our heavenly Father formed us for eternal life. This brings us the joy and confidence which marks us as a Christian that depends on God’s guidance. This brings us to a wholeness of body and spirit on our journey, and we will rise as Jesus has risen.
 
In the responsorial psalm we acclaim: I will bless the Lord at all times. God is close to us, the broken hearted; when we are crushed in spirit God saves us.
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: May we open ourselves to the intimate delights of the presence of God in our souls, and that we treasure the secret exchange of His trust and love. Who rescues us?
