Evening Meditations for Thursday – Third Week After Easter ~ St Alphonsus Liguori
David placed all his hope of salvation in his future Redeemer, and said: Into thy hands, 0 Lord, I commend my spirit; Thou hast redeemed me, 0 Lord, the God of truth-(Ps. xxx. 6). But how much more ought we to place our confidence in Jesus Christ, now that He has come and has accomplished the work of Redemption! Hence each one of us should say, and repeat again and again with greater confidence: Into thy hands, 0 Lord, I commend my spirit; thou hast redeemed me, 0 Lord, the God of truth.
