Go back and read

In today’s first reading (2 Kings 22:8-13; 23:1-3), the book of the law has been found in the temple and is read to the King and then all the people of Jerusalem.

It is a pivotal moment: when they realize how far they have fallen and when they resolve to embrace the ways of the Lord in a new and fuller way.

Perhaps this is the time for such a moment for you and me.

Perhaps this is the time when we go back and, for example, read the Gospel according to Saint Matthew at one sitting, or begin a program of reading the entire Catechism bit by bit and day by day.

This can be a time of special grace for us.

A time to go back and read.
