Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:
September 25, A.D. 2005
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
“...You saw, ...change your minds and believe...” Matthew 21:32
Clearly, pointedly, belovedly, our Lord reveals that ‘doing’ what is God’s
will, rather than concurring without following through, is the ‘way’ one
enters the kingdom of God. Hearing one’s call, then responding faithfully
in the labor of achieving this, requires a discipline of will to listen, trust,
obey, and to conform oneself to the work of God.
Evidenced throughout the Holy life of Jesus, He replies to His searching
parents, they may know He is ‘found’ about the work of the Father. One
thus understands, where and how one finds Jesus, whenever one feels
lost to Him... simply, “be about the work of the Father.” One who follows
through with one’s actions, is “about the work of the Father”, and
thus ‘finds’ the presence of the Son.
One knows the Father through the Son who is about His Father’s
work. That is how one makes Him known as well, to others.
Our Blessed Mother at Cana also instructs us to “Do whatever He tells you.
” He may then achieve with our humble wash basins of efforts, the graced
and choicest blessings for God’s glory.
O Lord, grace us, in courage, to “do greater works than these’...” to always
be about the work of the Father, extending You, present in us, Your mystical
body, Word, Sacraments, and by remaining in You to bring You to others - healing,
teaching, praying, laboring tirelessly; “...thy kingdom come, thy will be done...”
- Mary Williams
