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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

July 5, A.D. 2005

: Genesis 32:23-33
Psalm 17:1-3, 6-8, 15
Matthew 9:32-38

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

The Pharisees must have been blind! In todayıs gospel reading, the Lord casts a demon from a man that had made him mute so that the man could speak once again, only to be accused of doing it through the power of Satan. How could they possibly say that good was bad?

The Lord had pity on those who came to him since they seemed like lost sheep. Their religious leaders had left them and were not giving them the leadership and direction they needed. In fact, they had abandoned not only them, but the truths of their faith as well. They had arrived to the place where good for them had become bad.

We see this today. According to our much of our society, and many individuals, protecting the lives of the unborn and elderly is now bad. Obtaining wealth at the expense of all else is now good. Prayer in public is bad but sexual relations before marriage is now good.

We are blessed to have the Church to help us on our journey continually teaching us the truths of our faith so that we donıt stray nor become abandoned. The Body of Christ and His teachings are alive and well and with us today!
