Monday Psalms, Psalm 39 (38)

Hear my prayer, O Lord, and give ear to my cry; hold not Your peace at my tears! For I am a sojourner, like all my fathers.

We are all sojourners. Our home here is temporary as we wait, believe, and hope for the eternal, our heavenly home. Mary, with Christ, sojourned from Nazareth to Judea, from Judea to Bethlehem, from Bethlehem to Egypt, from Egypt to Nazareth. “Be it done to me according to thy word.”
