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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

March 2, A.D. 2004

Scripture from Today's Liturgy of the Word:

Isaiah 55:10-11
Psalm 34:4-7,16-19
Matthew 6:7-15

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

"In prayer do not babble like the pagans. . . "

During this Lenten season we may endeavor to pray more regularly and more fervently. We may add more rosaries onto our daily prayer routine or decide to take up another form of prayer. This is all good. Sometimes though, we need to be careful that our focus is not just on the achievement or completion of our daily prayer tasks, for in this there is no gift in itself. We need to remember that the real gift of prayer is that it keeps us centered on the present moment, where God is ALWAYS present. It takes us out of the mindless chatter of our mind, keeping us truly alert and reflective, opening our hearts to the abundance of love that God wishes to bestow on us.
