Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

November 7, A.D. 2002

Philippians 3:3-8
Psalm 105:2-7
Luke 15:1-10


A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

In today's First Reading from St. Paul, we learn an important sign of progress in the Spiritual life. It is that, what we once thought was important, is now of little value in light of God's unsurpassing love for us. It is this "right perspective", the fruit of faithfulness to the Faithful One, that puts everything in order. Of even greater worth is the knowledge and understanding that God remains faithful, even when we are not, and moreover, cancels all our transgressions against Him whenever we turn to Him with humbled and contrite hearts.

What a joy to know that unlike human relationships that suffer sometimes irreparable damage because of being unfaithful, our relationship with God is always restorable. In and through the saving blood of Christ we are created anew, washed clean in the Blood of the Lamb, become again as white as snow.

Praise Jesus for His saving and restoring love.

"Let hearts rejoice who search for the Lord." (Ps 105:3) They will find Him!
