A remnant

Today's first reading (Genesis 6:5-8; 7:1-5, 10) gives us part of the familiar story of the Flood and the remnant destined by God to survive that great catastrophe.

From that remnant, the world would be repopulated with all of its diversity of life.

It is a reminder that, no matter how bad things may get and no matter what shreds of existence we may be left with, God remains faithful to his faithful people and God can restore the frailest shred to the fullness of glory.
