Psalm 1

Easter 7 – Year B

Psalm 1

Happy delight: an excellent starting place.

Yielding fruit in your time: the time for this is always now.

These two let us know we are moving toward the great better not yet arrived.

In this psalm there is a fine play between the joy of creation and the joy of participation. When these two are active we anticipate joy beyond joy yet to come.

Remember your joys. Live your joys. Anticipate your joys.

Then take the next quantum leap:
remember joy; live joy; anticipate joy.

No matter what order you proceed through this trinity of joy you will find yourself embarking on the other aspects of love.

An excellent start to the Psalms; an excellent start, period. Now that it has begun, keep it rolling.
