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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

April 11, A.D. 2004

Scripture from Today's Liturgy of the Word:

Acts 10:34,37-43
Psalm 118:1-2,16-17,22-23
1 Corinthians 5:6-8
John 20:1-9

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

"On the first day of the week, at dawn, the women came to the tomb bringing the spices they had prepared."

Today we celebrate the wondrous day of Christ's Resurrection. It is a day that evokes many different images of the reality of God's love for us and how it is manifested. One word that characterizes the Divine attitude is, faithfulness, a faithfulness that springs from love beyond all telling. That is what we hear echoed in the many readings from the Easter Vigil, the faithfulness of God, who loves us and is faithful to His promises.

As creatures who are made to mirror the divine attributes of God, we too are called to faithfulness, to do what is right and just, to keep our promises.

In the story of the women coming at daybreak to the tomb to anoint the body of Jesus, we see how their faithfulness was rewarded--they became the first witnesses to the Resurrection.

Let this be a lesson for us, an incentive to do all within our power to be faithful to our sacred obligations and responsibilities.

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia! The Lord is risen, as He promised!
