Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

November 13, A.D. 2002

Titus 3:1-7
Psalm 23:1-6
Luke 17:11-19


A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

How very attractive St. Paul makes Christian living! It would seem like heaven on earth. But Paul was aware even as he was writing, how much he had failed to come up to the ideal of gentleness and forgiving kindness. Scripture records his flare ups with Peter and Barnabas and Mark. The point is, of course, that all this pleasant state of living is made possible by the power of grace. How many times have we been at odds with others and with ourselves, only to have a complete change of heart as our hard feelings soften with the words of a psalm such as: "How good and pleasant it is for brothers to live as one."

May we always quickly seek reconciliation and healing through prayer, that we may struggle once again to witness to others by the graciousness of our relationships with those with whom we live and work.
