Prayer of the Day

Feast of St. Peter Chrysologus, Bishop & Doctor of the Church

July 30th, 2016
"Amend your ways and your doings, and obey the voice of the Lord your God." Jeremiah 26 : 13
St Peter

Today is the feast of St Peter Chrystologus, whose name means Golden Words. He preached short clear homilies, he was like to-days portrayal of  Jeremiah from the first reading, who with clear concise words changed the minds of the people.  They neither put Jeremiah to death nor refused to view him as a prophet. Jeremiah’s words  spoken when he was on trial in answer to the princes and people;  ‘It was the Lord who sent me to prophecy against this house and city all that you have heard. Now therefore,  reform your ways and your deeds; listen to the voice of the Lord your God so that the Lord your God will repent of the evil with which he threatens you.’  Thereupon the princes and all the peoples said to the priests and prophets;  ‘This man does not deserve death; it is in the name of the Lord, our God, that he speaks to us.’’ (Jeremiah 26 : 11 – 16)

Lord help us to love one another as you love us. Amen
