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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

April 10, A.D. 2005

Acts 2:14,22-23
Psalm 16:1-2,5,7-11
1 Peter 1:17-21
Luke 24:13-35

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

"Were not our hearts burning within us while He spoke to us on the way and opened the scriptures to us?" (see Luke 24:32)
The Word incarnates as Scripture and Eucharist which is our Emmaus, and transforms grief to joy.

We grieve and journey and He appears in our midst!

He consoles, coming in the Word of Scriptures and the Word of Eucharist to open our own eyes.

When we 'See', He vanishes to allow us then to 'Make known His presence. . .

We hasten to the Jerusalem of expectant souls and proclaim Him alive. Yes, we too beg Him to "Stay with us," each time we hear Him proclaimed and receive Him Eucharistically.

Yes, we are often "foolish, slow of heart to believe all that the prophets spoke that it is necessary that the Christ should suffer these things and enter into his glory. . ."

We 'see'. . . .

He suffers today.

Sin imposes on her pure soul of innocence a holocaust sacrifice we fail to protect.

He is the Priest, the Altar, and the Sacrifice. She is His Own. Christ suffers all and enters into His glory.

Our beloved vicar of Christ on earth, magnifies His Glory, proclaims again Christ's triumph over death; suffers, embraces, and beholds her, His innocent one to The One.

"Are not our hearts burning within us?"

O Lord, help us return to the land of God, the homeland soil of our souls, and proclaim this joy and Truth. May we rededicate ourselves in this springtime of your Church, to know, love and serve you with all our hearts, minds, souls and strength as today, she and he are beheld and beloved in You.

Life is His.
The Church's hope and life is in Life eternal.
His sweetness and hope is Life eternal.
One in the One -- for all.


- Mary Williams
