Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
During our daily pilgrimage towards Heaven we are called to grow closer to Our Lord Jesus Christ. To do this we must love humbly, thus repent for our sins. John the Baptist knew this, and as St. Paul explains in the first reading, he baptised in the name of repentance. Those that were baptised by John were ready to receive Christ. Therefore, Paul baptised them in Jesus' name and they received the Holy Spirit to guide them along their earthly pilgrimage.
The Gospel continues this theme. Now that the disciples had accepted Christ into their lives, they will find peace. The same can be said for each one of us who opens our hearts to Our Lord. The peace of which Jesus speaks, can only be received when we're united with Him and the Father. Being united with the Holy Trinity enables us to overcome all the trials of this world. We know this because Jesus said: "In the world you will have trouble, but take courage, I have conquered the world." (John 16:33)
