In Every Age

Tuesday, June 5, 2018


Today, in Mercy, we remember St. Boniface, the great Apostle of Germany, and considered one of Europe’s founders. A quote from his extensive writings says: “What we ourselves cannot bear, let us bear with the help of Christ.”

Today’s psalm carries a similar sentiment: 

“In every age, O Lord,
you have been our refuge.” 

This prayer offers us at least two considerations for our meditation:

  1. Consider how faithful God has been to you throughout your “generations “, and to the many generations of your family on whose shoulders you stand.
  2. What is it, at this age in your life, for which you most need God’s help and “refuge”?

In Every Age

In your prayer, let yourself rest against God’s love and strength, as you would rest against a sturdy rock. Imagine that the afternoon sun has warmed a crevice in that rock, just your size, and waiting to embrace you. When you leave it at the end of your prayer, leave all your worries, fears and anxieties with it – trusting them to God’s kindness and power.

    One of my favorite hymns. My friend Marcella, had picked it out for the offertory of her funeral Mass yesterday. It touched me yesterday and now again today. Thank you, Renee!
