Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

March 21, A.D. 2006

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:
Daniel 3:25, 34-43
Psalm 25:4-9
Matthew 18:21-35

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

Today's selections of Sacred Scripture contain so many wonderful images of the mercy of God, that it is difficult to focus on just one. Perhaps the one that stays foremost in my mind is that of a loving God who bends His ear to hear our prayer. [see the Entrance Antiphon for today's Mass taken from Psalm 16:6, 8]

The responsibilities of being an adult are really quite serious even though, hopefully, we grow in time and can rise to all the occasions that maturity demands. Still, there is often a part of me that often longs to be unburdened of worry, to be "cared for."

Sometimes images are a helpful way to picture what God is like. Let us utilize our imagination -- which is in itself a gift from God -- and picture the most loving and kind person we have ever known, dropping everything and stooping down and inclining their ear to listen to us alone -- not because there is anything to be gained in it for them, but purely out of love, concern and interest in us. It is caring, without any strings attached; it mirrors the love of God.

During this time of grace, may God reveal to us in ways that are unique to our own circumstances, temperaments and life experiences, this image of His love.
