02-04-18 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

February 4, 2018
(Fifth Sunday Ordinary Time B)
In the midst of his great suffering, Job spoke, saying: Is not man’s life on earth a drudgery? Are not his days those of hirelings?  He is a slave who longs for the shade, a hireling who waits for his wages.  So I have been assigned months of misery, and troubled nights have been allotted to me.   Jb_7:1-4,6-7

Today’s Scriptures are filled with the miseries of life:  Job in his physical, spiritual and mental agony, Paul in his suffering to spread the Gospel, Peter in the illness of his mother in law and all the sick and demon possessed who sought Jesus’ healing.  And yet, THERE’s the hope!  Our Psalm proclaims, Praise the LORD, for he is good; sing praise to our God, for he is gracious; . . . He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.  Ps 147

When we place our trust in Jesus, beloved, whatever hurt the world throws at us can be overcome.  And even when it is not, we know that not even death can keep us from God’s love.  And that’s what Jesus came to prove to us.  His love conquers all!
