Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

November 16, A.D. 2002

3 John 5-8
Psalm 112:1-6
Luke 18:1-8


A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

Pray always without becoming weary . . . .

Our Blessed Mother, often speaking through human persons over the many centuries, still calls us to prayer, encouraging us to "pray, pray, pray" so that the love of God may grow in our hearts and Satan's power be diminished in the world. Our Lady tells us that if we only realized the power of prayer, we would continue to pray without ceasing!

Prayer "centers" us, brings us into communion with God so that we can go redirected and refreshed back into the world with the armour of God at our side. With God's grace more abundant in our hearts we can more often display the constructive values of truth, justice, hope and faith so that we might positively impact the world around us, and make the Kingdom of Heaven a reality on earth.

Our prayer life with God is the beginning of eternity, even while we reside here on earth. The more we pray and the more our lives reflect a deeper communion with God, the more miracles of God's grace can work in and through us for the betterment of our souls and our world.

Today, let us give God some quality time so that His plans for us and our brothers in sisters in the world may be fully fulfilled.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.
