St Mary of the Cross McKillop (f)

Judith 8:11-17, 28-31; Psalm 32;
Matthew 6:25-34

Do not worry

Mary McKillop lived the lesson of today’s Gospel. Trusting God in troubled times is challenging, yet Jesus reveals that the Father loves us beyond our wildest hopes. We are called to put God first and focus on living holy lives, making the good news the priority of our lives. We are invited to go far deeper with God than is comfortable. God asks not for the veneer of religious observance, but for abandonment to his will, which means letting God into the nitty-gritty of daily life and being good news for others. What blocks me from trusting that much?
