Ps 104 (105): 4a.5a.6, 16-17, 18-19, 20-21
The readings of today invite us to get rid of jealousy or lust, in order to enter into a dynamic of accommodating and loving of others. The first reading points out that Jacob’s preferential love for his son, Joseph, arouses jealousy and the murderous conspiracy of his other sons. Hence, this lust blinds their hearts and annihilates their ability to truly love (Gn 37: 4).
