Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:
February 14, A.D. 2006
Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:
Psalm 94:12-15, 18-19
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
The First Reading is from the Epistle of James. The whole epistle is
comparably short and we donšt hear it too often which is unfortunate
the writing style and the message it conveys are very instructional and
uplifting. Today we're reminded that temptation does not come from God
some may think. In fact as the Responsorial Psalm echoes, the Lord has
concern for us in time of trial.
Brother Lawrence of the Resurrection, a humble Carmelite brother who
as a cook in a Carmelite monastery, wrote how pleased the Lord is when
remember Him -- either when with sword in hand on the way to battle or
"among the pots and pans."
It is in the ordinariness of our lives that God often seems hidden, yet
actually is very close. And good it is, because most of our lives are
with an ordinariness that sometimes wears us down and dissolves our
to do good.
Pray then, for perseverance and for the grace not to succumb to the
and temptations of this life. Just say it: "My foot is slipping!"
"When I say, My foot is slipping,š
your kindness, O Lord, sustains me."
