Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

March 16, A.D. 2003

Genesis 22:1-2,9,10-13,15-18
Psalm 116:10,15-19
Romans 8:31-34
Mark 9:2-10


A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

In today's Gospel, Peter, James and John witness the Transfiguration of Jesus on the mount. While this transcending experience must have been a terrifying experience for them, it must also have validated the hope and trust they placed in Jesus as their Lord and teacher. Very often on our journey of faith, we encounter desert periods where we can feel a distance from the guidance and love of the Holy Spirit and question whether we are on the right path. Other times, we can experience a deep knowledge and awareness within us that Jesus is close to us, residing in the depths of our hearts. It is these prize moments that make our Faith worthwhile as we try and live our knowledge of Jesus in the everyday secular world.

So let us not be fearful and anxious regarding the ups and downs of our journey of Faith. Placing our trust in God, His plans will always bear fruit in us according to His design, not our own.
