Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

April 20, A.D. 2004


Scripture from Today's Liturgy of the Word:

Acts 4:23-31
Psalm 2:1-9
John 3:1-8


A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:


The Scripture series that we're reading now, bring us to an awareness of the amazing power and action of the Holy Spirit. Jesus told Nicodemus that "...no one can enter God's kingdom without being begotten of water and Spirit." - John 3:5

That power and action is manifest again today in Acts 4:31: "The place where they gathered shook as they prayed. They were filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak God's word with confidence." Those of us who live in areas prone to earthquakes or have experienced them can have an appreciation of God's awesome power in nature and the feeling of smallness and helplessness that it brings.

God is a mighty power to reckon with, and His holy Scripture makes that clear to us. As we struggle through the uncertainties of life, let us have complete confidence in our God, the Almighty--to come back to the shelter of His love for us and His incredible desire to share perfect union with us after we pass on to life eternal.

- Joachim, ocds
