Sharing the Word for May 2, 2022 – Third Week of Easter – Year 2

Memorial of Saint Athanasius

May 2, 2022
Daily Reading from the USCCB: Psalm 119:23-24, 26-27, 29-30
Audio file


Today’s psalm reflection is based on Psalm 119–an extended treatment of “the law.” Its the longest psalm in the Bible. It proclaims God’s self-revelation. In a series of synonyms the text announces God’s outreach to his people. It expresses commitment to the word of God delivered by the people in various situations. 

Here we have God laying down the law to his people. We tend to look on “laying down the law” as threat–as God putting forth demands for obedience. In fact what God is offering us here is truth and blessing. If we accept it as such we will find ourselves following the path of virtue and fulfillment.

Do I look on God’s law as burden and threat, or as gift?
