Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:
October 19, A.D. 2002
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
Very often we're faced with big decisions in our lives which can
change the course of events not only of our own lives but of the
lives of others. In times like these we can struggle to know what to
say and how to say it, fearing to offend others or making others
unhappy, especially when we feel we're following the call of the
Lord. Often we can experience serious doubts and uncertainty up to
the point when we have to confront someone or some situation. In
today's Gospel, Jesus tells us that in following him, we need not
worry about what we are to say in our defense; the Holy Spirit will
teach us at the right moment what to say.
I think these are great words of comfort. When we have truly decided
to follow the Lord and put Him first in our lives, then the Holy
Spirit will accompany us through every difficult situation and
decision and be our light of wisdom and right judgment.
O Holy Spirit,
fill the hearts of your faithful
and enkindle in them the fire of your love!
