Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:
February 16, A.D. 2006
Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
We have an interesting combination of readings today, however they
complement each other.
In the First Reading wešre reminded that wešre not to show partiality
towards one group of individuals over another. The variable cited is
Wešre not to favor the rich over the poor; but the reading does not
poverty. We all know that a person can have all kinds of material
and in fact be poor spiritually or vice versa. We cannot tell that by
looking at a person, nor are we to judge. Thus, if wešre to be
the vineyard as disciples and stewards of God's gifts, wešll treat
the same. God canšt work through us if wešre setting up barriers in
to certain individuals. That person might be the very one God wants us
In the Gospel for today, we have the famous question that Christ asks
Peter: "And who do you say that I am?" When we consider this question
against the First Reading, wešre reminded of Christ asking "When did
me hungry, and thirsty and in prison?" The point is that Christ urges
look for Him in everyone. When we answer Christšs 'Who do you say that
we can answer that we saw Christ in everyone we encountered that day.
is a challenge and a great goal!
