Monday morning courage
For some, Monday morning is the hardest time of the week.
But for all of us, Moses’ words in today’s first reading (Exodus 14:5-18) are great words of courage with which to begin this day and this week.
Fear not! Stand your ground,
and you will see the victory
the LORD will win for you today.
Will everything go well today? Possibly not. But no matter what happens, by the grace of God we can faithfully and truthfully repeat the words of today’s Responsorial (Exodus 15:1bc-6):
My strength and my courage is the LORD,
and he has been my savior.
