June 20, A.D. 2004


Scripture from Today's Liturgy of the Word:

Zechariah 12:10-11; 13:1
Psalm 63:2-6,8-9
Galatians 3:26-29
Luke 9:18-24


A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:


Today in the little overview which preceeds today's Gospel, the Roman Missal says that Jesus was praying in seclusion and then points out how integral prayer was for Jesus and how it accompanied Him and preceeded important decisions and activities in His life.

What is significant is that Holy Scripture shows us that Jesus prayed often and for the most part sought solitude when He prayed.

For those who long for greater friendship with God, let us do the same - let us often seek the Lord's company in prayer and let us do all we can to approach Him with undistracted minds, and undisturbed senses. Let us go away to a place of solitude where the Lord of heaven can be reached. Let us go within, where through Baptism, the Trinity is pleased to dwell.
