  • Breaking Open the Word [Psalm 62]
    Rest in God alone, my soul
    8th Sunday Ordinary Time, 2017

     
    Psalm 62 proclaims God as rock, refuge, stronghold, all images of God’s steadfast love.
    The human soul, his/her inner being longs to connect to God. This psalm is a prayer of

Psalmist wrestles with despair, doubt and affliction; he feels like a leaning wall or like a ‘fence that is in danger of collapsing’. As in several other psalms, psalm 62 is a profession of faith, prayer for healing and protection from enemies that seek the psalmist’s destruction.
