Every day, we need to go to our quiet place...

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

March 8, A.D. 2003

Isaiah 58:9b-14
Psalm 86:1-6
Luke 5:27-32

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

We are called to a change of heart, to be renewed through the graciousness and kindness of our God.

Jesus is once again making a special appeal to all of us to come and follow Him as we celebrate this first Saturday of our Lenten journey. Our Lord gives us this season within the Church, a time to look within, and an another opportunity to step out in faith and speak to everyone we know about Jesus. We all know someone who has turned away from Jesus Christ, who has taken up the ways of the world, caught up in some kind of aura and excitement that the media and magazines contain. It is in faith and trust that we can lead someone back to God, away from the temptations of the world. But we must pray daily that we will be filled with grace and be inspired by the Holy Spirit to accomplish this Lenten mission.

Won't you take time to attend the various services and Masses that are offered in your Church? Won't you take the time to do something "extra" for the Lord, who has done everything for us -- something that you would not ordinarily do?

Dear Father in Heaven
You sent your Son Jesus to show us the way.
Please allow us the grace
to understand what we must do for your glory.
