Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:
February 9, A.D. 2006
Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:
1 Kings 11:4-13
Psalm 106:3-4, 35-37, 40
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
Our readings today have much to say about demons and strange gods,
common in the days of Christ. Today we couch our 'demons' in more
politically correct language, so as to be more socially acceptable.
gods have names such as materialism, power, greed, elitism, racism,
Parents today have an unbelievable challenge to raise their children in
midst of these 'demons' without their being tainted by peer influences
which are rampant. Adults can end up 'worshipping' these gods in order
fit better into society as they age. Hard earned money is squandered ,
hearts are broken and all for naught!
The gospel of Mark gives us hope, however. Today we hear of Christ
the daughter from her demon, due to the faith and persistent prayer of
mother. If we have friends and family members who are caught up
these strange gods, we can attempt to have their hearts changed
persistent prayer and intercession to God. God does hear us and will
in His time.
- Joan of Jesus, OCDS
