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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

September 27, A.D. 2002

Ecclesiates 3:1-11
Psalm 144:1-4
Luke 9:18-22


A reflection on today's Sacred Scripture:

"Who do you say that I am." (Luke 9:20)

Today's Gospel answers the question posed by Jesus as he and his disciples were praying. When we set aside a special time to pray we're really communicating with our Lord on a very personal and intimate basis. We pray asking for blessings upon our loved ones, ourselves and those we have been asked to pray for who are sick or troubled. We also take the time to thank Him for all the blessings that He has already provided us.

When we pray, we feel a love, a closeness to Jesus; a response seems to fill our hearts and minds allowing us to be calm and to reflect. Some days we might think we're too busy and don't set aside time to pray. It is then that we feel emptiness, that something is missing.

Ecclesiastes tells us there is a time for everything under heaven. Let us be sure to set a time of day when we're most comfortable and recollected; choose a form of prayer (rosary, scripture, a prayer book, these meditations etc); then form a habit of prayer everyday. Know that our merciful and loving Lord is waiting to listen and speak to us.
