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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

May 4, A.D. 2005

Acts 17:15,22--18:1
Psalm 148:1-2,11-14
John 16:12-15

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

What strength we see in Paul after his conversion! It shows the power of God in our souls! Paul was not afraid to stand up and proclaim that people should not be worshipping false gods, gods made of human hands. He also reminded people that one day they would be held accountable for their false worship.

What would Paul have to say to us today about our "gods' of power, money, materials? His message is a timely one. How much time do we spend in prayer and worship in contrast to false worship of the gods of our present age?

The message of Christ in the Gospel reassures us, in that we are all free to turn to the Spirit of Truth. The Holy Spirit can guide us in our actions in order that we keep our priorities straight in life.

O Holy Spirit, enlighten us!
