The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord:
‘Come, go down to the potter’s house,
and there I will let you hear my words.’
So I went down to the potter’s house,
and there he was working at his wheel.
The vessel he was making of clay
was spoiled in the potter’s hand,
and he reworked it into another vessel,
as seemed good to him.
Then the word of the Lord came to me:
Can I not do with you, O house of Israel,
just as this potter has done? says the Lord.
Just like the clay in the potter’s hand,
so are you in my hand, O house of Israel.
— Jeremiah 18:1-6
[This beautiful reading from today’s Mass has much to say to us about God and how the grace of God can remake us and give us new beginnings. Take time to think and pray about and with this Word of the Lord. From You Tube comes a United Methodist choir version of a Carey Landry tune.]
