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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

July 4, A.D. 2006


Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Amos 3:1-8; 4:11-12
Psalm 5:4b-6a, 6b-7, 8
Matthew 8:23-27



A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

In today’s readings from Holy Scripture we’re reminded that God and His works are extraordinary. We know this, of course, through faith and our own human understanding of things. However, we would do well to remember that our sense of God and the power and glory of His attributes are always–in the final analysis–limited, lest we underestimate the great value of the final goal of seeing and knowing God as He is.

Recalling the stories and words of Holy Scripture helps us to gain some kind of balance in this tippy world of ours, for we know that Jesus is in the boat with us and is the “sort of person that even the wind and sea obey.”

“Who is this?” another gospel writer asks; I want to know, I want to see Him, I want to see God!
