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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

March 29, A.D. 2006

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:
Isaiah 49:8-15
Psalm 145:8-9, 13-14, 17-18
John 5:17-30

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

Can a mother forget her infant, be without tenderness for the child of her womb? Even should she forget, I will never forget you.
(Isaiah 49:15)

Can there be any better statement of how much God loves us? But even when the prophet told the people how much God cared for them, they cried out saying the Lord had forgotten and forsaken them.

So, God continued His great work and love by sending His son. And what happened? The people rejected Him too, claiming He was a sinner, a blasphemer and one who failed to keep the Sabbath.

Jesus came and brought with Him the complete love of the Father. He showed the people many great miracles, healed the sick and raised the dead. He did only as the Father directed Him, bringing salvation and love to all peoples. But, they refused to see.

Are we no different today? Are our lives richly blessed? Are our hearts healed? Are our minds restful in Him that brings perfect peace? Are our souls at peace for all time because of a God that loves us completely? Or, do we grumble, asking where God is when we face trouble, when we are lonely, ill or feel rejected?

God loves us even more than a mother does the child of her womb. God is always present, He can never forget us. It is up to us to receive His love.
