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

A Quiet Place

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

June 22, A.D. 2001

Ezekiel 34:11-16
Psalm 23:1-6
Romans 5:5-11
Luke 15:3-7

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

It's good to remind ourselves of the childlike Faith we are called to have in Jesus. Today's readings speak of our Lord as the Good Shepherd who lovingly tends His flock and who rejoices over finding lost sheep. When we consider the Good Shepherd, it calls to mind the image of a benevolent father, a responsible carer who protects his flock. It also reminds us how dependent the flock is upon the shepherd for all their needs.

In a world, where we are accustomed to taking control, believing ourselves to be independent and knowledgeable, let us remind ourselves today that we can only truly experience the mysteries of life through union with Our Good Shepherd, Jesus. It is only through Him, that our path of life and our quest for salvation will be truly enlightened.
