Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:
April 6, A.D. 2006
Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
We live in an era when doubt is cast on statements like "Lifetime
when we buy a product. Right away we might question which part of the
is really protected or what is the expected lifetime of the product. We
realize that personal promises are so easily broken as we see in the
divorce statistics. As humans we sometimes take our promises lightly.
In contrast, we have the assurances of God to Abraham in the first
reading for today. God promises Abraham an everlasting pact. That is
in contrast to our "Lifetime Warrantee" statements. Nothing is free,
however. God asked of Abraham and the Jewish people, only that they
word, that they keep their part of the covenant, as that is what a love
The same is asked of us today! Each of us has an everlasting covenant
God through our baptism! What a gift! We are promised eternity if only
keep our end of the covenant. God never turns away from us! It is left
whether we accept that offer. What a choice!
- Joan of Jesus, OCDS
