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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

April 12, A.D. 2004

Scripture from Today's Liturgy of the Word:

Acts 2:14,22-32
Psalm 16:1-2,5,7-11
Matthew 28:8-15

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

As the women of Jesus' group of believers left the tomb, having found it empty, Jesus suddenly appeared to them, greeting them with the salutation:
"Peace!" Hearing that and seeing him once again, they joyfully "embraced His feet and did Him homage." (Matthew 28:9)

Today, Jesus greets us, His believers, in peace. We are consoled by His reassurance that the Father will forgive us our sins, that Jesus has redeemed our souls and won a place in heaven for us! What tremendous happiness is ours, this day after Easter!

Let us each go out into the world today, as the light of the Paschal Candle, bringing the light and peace of Christ to all whom we meet today--and every day.

- Joachim
