The Word Among Us

Video Daily Reflections

Pray at Notre Dame University, Indiana

Thus says the Lord [about Zion]:

Sing for joy, O heavens, and exult, O earth;

    break forth, O mountains, into singing!

For the Lord has comforted his people,

    and will have compassion on his suffering ones.


But Zion said,

"The Lord has forsaken us,

    our Lord has forgotten us."


[Then the Lord continued:]

Can a woman forget her nursing child,

    or show no compassion for the child of her womb?

Even these may forget,

    yet I will not forget you.

See, I have inscribed you on the palms of my hands...

        (cf. Isaiah 49:13-16a)
