Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:
April 12, A.D. 2005
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
The problems of the world seemed to be crashing down around me. I called for
O my Lord, why am I so weak? Why must I always need a sign? Why am I always
asking for proof? Why am I so like those who, 2000 years ago, wanted a
miracle so they could believe? Why am I like Thomas and refuse to believe
unless I see? My Lord and Savior, I know in my heart that You are the bread
of life, that You are the fountain of living water that quenches a killing
thirst. When my life is easy, I need no proof; when times get rough I beg
for a sign that You are here, that You are with me. So, why, Lord, do I
And He Answered:
You are My brother, My son, My loved one, part of My bride the Church, and
like a brother, son, loved one and bride I cannot, and never will, abandon
you. My beloved, you do not need proof, nor a sign. You need Me and that is
truly what you seek. Like I waited for My servant Stephen, who gave all for
me, I am standing here for you, arms outstretched, ready to hold you close
to me. Like My Father did for the chosen wandering in the desert, I too will
feed you for I am the Bread of Life. Come taste My pure, Refreshing Water.
The troubles of the world are but momentary. My love is eternal. My
resurrection is your sign, come to Me.
And as He spoke to me in the Holy Scripture we read today, I was comforted
and He confirmed to me again that He is real, He is here and He is always!
Amen. Thank You O Lord, my God.
