The unseen hand of the steersman: God
  • Acts 28:16-20,30-31
  • Psalm 11:4-5,7
  • John 21:20-25

In the Gospel proclamation we see Peter being inquisitive of John’s fate and the Lord’s swift reply was: “it is no concern of yours”. There is a testi- mony in the lives of every person, as it is confirmed in a disclaimer by John that there are many things that Jesus did which are unwritten. There are bi- ographies of great saints like Francis of Assisi, Therese of Lisieux, Ignatius of Loyola, but there are many saints whose stories we do not know, whose testimonies to the unending love and grace of God have transformed many lives. In the Acts of the Apostles, we see Paul who originally persecuted Christians, committed to spread the Good News fearlessly, risking his life for the same cause he fought against. He started preaching to the Jews first and on being rejected he turned to the gentiles and that was the very purpose God had planned for him. In faith, through Baptism into his death and Resurrection, we can be another book, another testimony to the love and power of God and be used powerfully for His glory.

Prayer: Abba Father, through the power of the Resurrection, let me be yet another testimony for your greater glory. Amen.
