Every day, we need to go to our quiet place...

A Quiet Place

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

June 17, A.D. 2001

Genesis 14:18-20 Psalm 110:1-4 1 Corinthians 11:23-26 Luke 9:11-17

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

Being individuals, each of us experiences God in a unique way; however when we approach the Communion Table our hearts should have some concerns in common. For example, it profits us to first examine our consciences and make a sincere Act of Contrition; for these earthen vessels we occupy often need cleansing in preparation for receiving Christ, the all holy God. Because Christ loves us infinitely, everlastingly, unconditionally and gave Himself totally on the Cross that we might have eternal life, we should be moved to a prayer of thanksgiving. This giving of Himself to us should also cause us to generously return the love He pours out on us from His pierced heart. And the proof that we genuinely love Him in return will be seen in our relationship with others, our sharing with them the love God in Christ gratuitously gives us.

We who are being sustained by God's Word, Christ, and Whose life will continue to nourish us throughout eternity, have a debt to pay, an obligation to make Him known in this world. We cannot call ourselves Christian unless we bear His divine Image, share His Godly characteristics; for God our Father has willed that we be united to Him and to one another in His Son. This unity is expressed by our eating one bread and drinking of one cup

Having consumed the Eucharist, the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Christ, dare we live in a manner that obscures His love and truth?

Blessed Redeemer,
help us live an undivided love for You,
pouring out our lives in loving service for your kingdom. Amen.
