Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

October 29, A.D. 2004

Scripture from Today's Liturgy of the Word:

Philippians 1:1-11
Psalm 111:1-6
Luke l4:1-6

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

St. Paul really loved the Philippians. He saw them as partners with doing the works of justice. Paul is really laying down the principles of a buzzword today in the church: collaboration. God is the source of justice, and it is the Holy Spirit who inspires and enables Christians to reach out to black and white, Christian and Jew and Moslem, in mutual respect, in efforts to seek Truth, and to live the Charity, both of which are the pillars of Justice.

Today, let us examine ourselves to see how we can improve our collaboration with Church teaching, Church leadership, and parish programs and ministries, as well as being more alert for opportunities right in our own families and in our own neighborhoods. We are all united in the bonds of grace--let us strive to live the reality of those bonds in freedom and trust.

- Msgr. Paul E. Whitmore
