Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

October 26, A.D. 2004


Scripture from Today's Liturgy of the Word:

Ephesians 5:21-33
Psalm 128:1-5
Luke 13:18-21


A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

What is the Kingdom of Heaven like?

Jesus tells us it's like the mustard seed, that once planted grows into a huge bush, or the small bit of yeast that combines to make a big batch of bread -- deceptively simple analogies!

If we take Jesus' words literally we could say that the Kingdom of Heaven is the vital ingredient for making something whole and good. While it's the means to an end it is also an end in itself.

As we grow in spiritual awareness, we understand that appreciating the time we have right now and focusing on the present moment through the active prayer of our daily lives, helps us to live Heaven -- bring eternity into the here and now. As we become messengers of love, peace, and forgiveness, we invite others to build up this Kingdom of Love, leading humanity to its ultimate goal of union with God.
