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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

April 25, A.D. 2004

Scripture from Today's Liturgy of the Word:

Acts 5:27-32,40-41
Psalm 30:2,4-6,11-13
Revelation 5:11-14
John 21:11-14

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

During these days following Easter, we've heard stories about the Apostles and their encounters with the Risen Lord. They tell of the changes which overcame them, their growing faith and eagerness to profess it. That's what an encounter with Christ should effect in us. It requires however not only God's grace, which He generously and willingly gives, but our cooperation with that grace.

Frequently, we're all too willing to overlook the responsibility that we have for own spiritual growth, expecting that God (even though He can) should overwhelm our senses and sensibility with His greatness. The fact is that for those who seek Him in genuine humility, find Him and willingly allow Him to overcome and take them as His own.

Let us pray then that the Easter mysteries which we have celebrated will transform us as it did the Apostles.

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