Revelation 15:1-4
Psalm 98:1-3,7-9
Luke 21:12-19


A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

What a clash and opposition we feel with thoughts of death: it's serenity and its horror, its finality and its promise! It is truly a part of life, a climax and a denouement. Thank God for the shock waves that energize us daily at the death of a friend, an acquaintance, or the suddenness of death of a total stranger. We mourn, ultimately, for ourselves.

What beauty there is in every human life, all the more underscored by the temporary and the passing. The beauty lies in its possibilities and potentials, while its terror lies in its uncertainty.

We have only the moment to redeem, the present. There is the challenge that comes in a million moments of our lives: "This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad!"
