Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:
December 7, A.D. 2002
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
As we approach the conclusion of our first week in Advent, we're
invited through the words of the Prophet Isaiah to come to the Lord
for the healing that we need--to be fed by Him. The psalmist affirms
this invitation and tells us that our longing for our God fills us
with great joy.
Our loving God, who knows all about us, wants to heal
us--body, mind and soul. He wants us to take down the walls that separate
us from Him. He longs for us to reach out toward Him where he awaits
us with compassion, for our repentance in the healing Sacrament of
Reconciliation. Jesus gave the Twelve authority to "expel
unclean spirits and to cure disease and sickness and disease of every
kind." We too, have the opportunity each day to be the hands of
Christ to others by living a virtuous life, thus becoming a channel
of God's grace to others in the special manner He wishes.
O patient and loving God
Continue to empower us,
for we can do nothing without you.
