A Fresh Start, A New Beginning, A Do Over

Mommy Mantra July 11, 2014: Responsorial Psalm ps 51:3-4, 8-9, 12-13, 14 and 17

The Responsorial Psalm really spoke to me today. Have you ever felt that way: like what you are hearing at Mass or reading at home is being said directly to you? That is the amazing thing about the Scriptures.

The words wash, cleanse, clean, create, are the most common words in today’s Psalm. A renewed heart create in me o, Lord. This is a theme for today’s Psalm and it is a recurring theme in Scripture. In fact our Catholic/Christian faith revolves around renewal: Reconciliation, Easter, the Eucharist, the season of Lent.
a
Create in me a clean heart o, Lord, a fresh start, a new beginning, a do over. We are never told to dwell in the past once we have asked for that clean heart. No where in today’s Psalm does it say anything about staying focused on all our missed deeds, cruel words, thoughtless actions, because God knows if we do that we can’t stand.

So today let’s pray for all those moms who are praying for clean hearts, new beginnings. I always keep you all in my thoughts and prayers, please remember me in yours. ~Wilson
