Praying at Home Today: Tuesday 6 October 2020
Praying at home today: reconciliation and redemption
A warm welcome to PrayingAtHome.com, where you can find worship resources for praying at home today or wherever you are.
We hope these readings, prayers, music and the short reflection will help you stay in touch with the Church and to sustain you on your journey through life.
We follow the Track 2 “related” Old Testament reading and psalm (or equivalent response).
Opening to the Word
You can spend a few moments in silence,
focussing on your breathing
to become more mindful of the present moment
and to open yourself more fully
to God’s presence within you.
In the name of the living God,
the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation:
everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new.
Si qua ergo in Christo nova creatura,
vetera transierunt: ecce facta sunt omnia nova.
Si quelqu’un est en Christ, il est une nouvelle créature.
Les choses anciennes sont passées; voici, toutes choses sont devenues nouvelles.
2 Corinthians 5:17
The Liturgy of the Word *
Here are today’s Bible readings.
You can read just one, or all three if you have time.

In Christ, everything is made new
“On that day”: the reading from Isaiah (in fact, chapters 24-27) is speaking of the εσχατον (eschaton), the last times.
For Christians, this is when Christ will present everything to the Father; everything is made new, the world is redeemed and we are reconciled to God and to one another.
Putting forth shoots, the vine will grow, filling the world with fruit.
It is the promise of a time when evil is overcome and everything good is fulfilled.
This through Jesus, who was made sin so as to win us for God.
