Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:
May 24, A.D. 2006
Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:
Acts 17:15, 22ó18:1
Psalm 148:1-2, 11-12, 13, 14
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
I am constantly amazed at the exquisiteness of our Lordís plan to bring us to His kingdom and eternal salvation. The Lord knew His disciples well and knew that they were not ready to hear the entire truth that Jesus came to deliver. So, He had a plan to send the Holy Spirit to bring the fullness of truth to the disciples and to all of us.
Todayís Gospel contains Jesusí foretelling of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. This is truly an amazing story. We find the apostles in fear and hiding after the Lordís death followed by their amazement and some disbelief at His Resurrection. Then, at Pentecost the spirit comes and the change in them is more than radical: it is something truly divine. The entire truth was revealed to them and through them to all Christians across the centuries to us today. What a truly exquisite plan that could not fail, that could only come from the one true God.
From this plan we all have the truth and with the truth all our fears from unknowns are gone.
