Bless the Lord at All Times

One of the best ways to see a lesson we should draw from our readings is to look at the responsorial psalm that follows the reading. Today Peter and some others of Jesus’ earlier followers are ordered by the authorities in Jerusalem to stop speaking about the Lord’s resurrection. Not the time and the place. They’re threatened with death.

“We must obey God rather than men,” Peter replies.

There’s no day or no circumstances for keeping quiet about this great mystery. There’s no season for forgetting it or minimizing it.

“Bless the Lord at all times,” our psalm says.

So we should.

    Interesting info: https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2017/04/05/christians-remain-worlds-largest-religious-group-but-they-are-declining-in-europe/
    Christians remained the largest religious group in the world in 2015, making up nearly a third (31%) of Earth’s 7.3 billion people, according to a new Pew Research Center demographic analysis. But the report also shows that the number of Christians in what many consider the religion’s heartland, the continent of Europe, is in decline.
    Approximately 2.38 billion people practice some form of Christianity globally. This means that about one-third of the world’s total population is Christian.
