Memorial of Saint Jerome, Priest and Doctor of the Church

Sing and rejoice, O daughter Zion! See, I am coming to dwell among you, says the LORD. Many nations shall join themselves to the LORD on that day, and they shall be his people and he will dwell among you.

God dwells with us. We might not see or hear Him directly, but He is always there for us. He is ready to help us in all our good works and to warn us against all our evil inclinations. With Him we can do great things. Without Him we can do nothing. Whenever we think, say, or do anything we should keep in mind God sees, hears, and knows what we are doing. We can’t hide anything from Him, nor can we explain away our actions or inactions. He knows exactly why we acted rightly or wrongly. We should live our lives with the sure knowledge God is with us and do everything according to God’s Will.

Do we rejoice at knowing God is with us? How have we joined ourselves to our Lord? What can we do to keep in mind He is always with us?

O Lord, dwell among us.
