Every day, we need to go to our quiet place...

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

March 25, A.D. 2006


Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:
Isaiah 7:10-14
Psalm 40:7-11
Hebrews 10:4-10
Luke 1:26-38



A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

"Behold, I am the Handmaid of the Lord. . ."

Whoa!

Put Lent on HOLD for just a minute!

We're having a feast!!!

Indeed, we pause in our Lenten journey to recall this most remarkable of feasts, when God Himself asked a woman to become His mother. When an angel appeared to our Lady and she became with child with the nod of her head.
"Let it be done unto me as you have said."

This is the beginning of the Good News of salvation -- a point hidden in time and celebrated a full nine months before the 25 December Birthday of Our Lord! This was the moment when all of humanity waited with bated breath, although they did not know it! Would Our Blessed Lady say yes or no? There is no longer any suspense, but there was in that time.

So, take a moment to rejoice and wonder at this message. Spend a little time with Our Lady, contemplating what this would mean. And then, go forth to serve, just as Our Lady went to her cousin Elizabeth, inspired by the Holy Spirit who came to Mary in her prayerful meditation.
