Saint Dominic
contemplating the Scriptures

Genesis 6:9-22;7:24;8:14-19

Over the centuries since God created the world, humans have declined so enormously in their behaviour that God has decided that the time has come to purify the earth. Noah and his family are among the very few who are faithful to him and the way he intended creation to be.

Romans 1:16-17;3:22b-28,(29-31)

In the first chapter of a letter to a church that he has not visited, Paul regrets that thus far he has not yet been able to travel to Rome to do the Lord's work of spreading the good news there.

Matthew 7:21-29

Jesus has warned the crowd about false prophets, people who appear to be genuine but in fact are not. Now he tells what will happen to those who acknowledge him but lack his love.
