Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

May 10, A.D. 2006

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Acts 12:24--13:5
Psalm 67:2-3, 5-6, 8
John 12:44-50

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

What marvelous images we get from today’s gospel! It begins by telling us that Jesus cried out. He did not just say these words, nor did He mumble them or just casually make a remark. No, these words were, and are, important. They are worth being heard by everyone!

Then, we have the image of light followed by the image of the word. Jesus came into the world as light, so that all might see. Many called Him rabbi, or teacher, and this image of light and the word shows us how much He is a teacher. Jesus did not leave us guessing on how to follow His Way, on how to worship the Father and on how we were to live our lives. He came as light so that we can clearly see and gave us His teaching in the word so we may all hear. He left nothing uncovered. He has cried out His word and made all visible in His light.
