Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

December 30, A.D. 2002

1 John 2:12-17
Psalm 96:7-10
Luke 2:36-40


A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

The entrance antiphon for today's Mass is so beautiful and descriptive that it merits careful reflection:

When peaceful silence lay over all, and the night had
run half of her swift course,
your powerful word, O Lord,
leaped down from heaven, from the royal throne.
(Wis 18:15-15)

In a flash, the will of God was accomplished. The Savior of all mankind became flesh, became man, that we might find our way back to our heavenly home.

The Word became flesh out of love and obedience to the Father. May Jesus, who left the splendor of Heaven, be an unceasing example of how we should live. By following Him, may we be loving and obedient and one day behold the splendor of His face.

- Donna Raye Nelson, ocds (1995)
