Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:
March 13, A.D. 2006
Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:
Psalm 79:8-9, 11, 13
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
"Be merciful, just as your father is merciful."
In todayıs gospel, Jesus asks us to imitate the actions of our
Heaven, as He does for us. But how is our Father merciful? In the
from the Book of Deuteronomy it is explained in one sentence what it
Father forgives. He forgives, despite the fact that we are sinners who
not always been loyal to His covenant.
Forgiveness is a very powerful act. It frees the offender and the
from evil because it is an act of love and mercy. Each act of love
one step closer towards Our Lord. As all good fathers, Our Heavenly
wishes to shower us with gifts. But He is not able to do so unless we
with Him. It is like a father buys a new bike for his child and leaves
his room. The child will not know that there is a brand new bike
him to play with until he returns home and sees it in his room.
Our Heavenly Father has many gifts that He wishes to bestow upon us;
unless we are home we won't know what wonders are waiting for us. That
why Jesus asks us to perform acts of love and mercy towards others; so
with each act, our hearts may be filled more and more with Godıs love,
enabling us to go home and find the bike in our rooms.
