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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

December 27, A.D. 2004

1 John 1:1-4
Psalm 97:1-2,5-6,11-12
Luke 20:2-8

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

"This is what we proclaim to you....
what we have seen with our own eyes...."

The Church chooses this time of year to remind us of some wonderful and powerful facts about our faith. Today we celebrate St. John the Evangelist, the writer of the Gospel of St. John, and of three letters to the churches.

And St. John tells us that he saw this. With his own eyes he witnessed what he wrote about. This is powerful. We have a first hand account here of someone who not only saw, but ate with the risen Lord. We have the words of someone who spoke with God in the Flesh.

If ever doubts come upon you, if ever you are wondering about what you believe, turn here and listen to the words of one who saw Jesus Risen, spoke with Jesus, lived with Jesus, walked with Jesus, and preached Jesus and the Love of the tender heart of God.
