Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:
January 23, A.D. 2006
Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:
2 Samuel 5:1-7, 10
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
Whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit is guilty of an everlasting
and will never have forgiveness
(Gospel Mark 3:30)
Jesus is accused of casting out demons by the power of the prince of
Satan. Reminding all that a house divided against itself cannot stand,
goes on to say that all sins and blasphemies can be forgiven save the
blaspheming against the Holy Spirit.
This sin alone is an everlasting sin and will never be forgiven.
Sobering words from our beloved Lord remind one that the Holy Spirit of
is capable of achieving only good. The Holy Spirit of God is a most
and irrefutable force for love. Re-classifying and re-identifying this
of the most Holy Spirit of God as the work of the evil one, the Prince
Darkness, Satan, blasphemes God's most pure and perfect love at work.
One must never mis-take the intention of God, His very Spirit at work
good and for life in Him. Acknowledging the Holy Spirit is an objective
Truth, never to be denied. One has a "free will" to cooperate with or
this grace-filled good, and to remain in baptized union with God. The
Good of the most Holy Spirit is True and perfect.
O most Holy Spirit of God, may we always acknowledge You in Truth and
you in all You are about. Grace us to protect, preserve, and present
a world of waiting souls who long for Your Truth in the darkness of
which discourages, denies and deflects Your goodness at work. May we
one in You, represent You in Truth and identify Your good purely to all
come to know you through us.
