Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

2 Peter 3:8-14
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
Upfront and in your face, at the very beginning of St. Mark's gospel is
a quote from Isaiah which is also read at length in today's First
Reading at mass:
"Make ready the way of the Lord,
clear him a straight path." Isaiah 40:3
Anyone who has been involved in road-building, or has watched roads
being built, knows what that quotation means! It's a tedious,
labor-intensive, time-consuming job, with attention to details. And for
what purpose? Simply to get from one place to another on a path that is
as direct as possible.
If you have really listened to this message of salvation in your
heart, then you know that you are a part of the Zion that Isaiah
speaks of when he says: "Go up onto a high mountain, Zion, herald of
glad tidings; cry out at the top of your voice...."
Let us rejoice in prayer and in our hearts, because our Lord has brought
us salvation and has taught us how to make the road straight and direct
to Him; for He desires us, and calls us to Himself.
- Joachim (1993)
