Spending wages, but unsatisfied?
come to the water!
You who have no money,
come, receive grain and eat;
Come, without paying
and without cost,
drink wine and milk!
Why spend your money for what is not bread;
your wages for what fails to satisfy?
and you shall eat well,
you shall delight in rich fare.
Come to Me heedfully,
listen, that you may have life.
I will renew with you the everlasting covenant,
the benefits assured to David.
(Today's first reading - Isaiah 55:1-3)
