07-02-15 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

July 2, 2015
God said to Abraham: “Take your son Isaac, your only one, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah.  There you shall offer him up as a burnt offering on a height that I will point out to you.” . . .

Abraham tied up his son Isaac, and put him on top of the wood on the altar.  Then he reached out and took the knife to slaughter his son.  But the LORD’s messenger called to him from heaven, “Abraham, Abraham!”  “Here I am,” he answered.  “Do not lay your hand on the boy,” said the messenger.  “Do not do the least thing to him. I know now how devoted you are to God, since you did not withhold from me your own beloved son.

The LORD told Abraham, “in your descendants all the nations of the earth shall find blessing—all this because you obeyed my command.”   Gn 22:1b-19

A story of pure faith.  A story of obedience.  A story of devotion.  A story of love.  A story that prefigured another, in which God himself offers His only beloved Son for us.  And in that Son, in Jesus, WE too shall find blessing – when we have faith in Him and stay always devoted and obedient to God.

Now THAT’s a beautiful story!
