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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

November 2, A.D. 2002

Daniel 12:1-3
Psalm 27:1,4,7-9,13-14
Romans 6:3-9
John 3:37-40

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

...neither death, nor life,
nor angels, nor principalities,
nor present things, nor future things,
nor powers, nor height, nor depth,
nor any other creature will be able to separate us
from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
(Romans 8:38-39)

When I attended Mass in Westminster Cathedral London last week, I was struck by the words of the priest who said that rules and regulations are not what should govern our human relationships but our common relationship with God should form the basis of all our sharing and relationships with one and other.

I recall these words today on the celebration of All Souls when we join together and commemorate all the faithfully departed. We pray for our deceased loved ones and in a special way we pray for all the dead who have no one to pray for them. Today too, let us remember all souls still living, as the Body of Christ on earth, that we may grow in love and healing and bring love and acceptance to the needy of our world.

We ask this all, in Christ our Lord. Amen.
