Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

September 2, A.D. 2006

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

1 Corinthians 1:26-31
Psalm 33:12-13, 18-19, 20-21
Matthew 25:14-30

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

"For to everyone who has, more will be given . . . ."

You could read this as one of the hard words of Jesus; but, there is another way to read it, a way of joy and hope.

Stop and consider for a moment, to the person who has, more will be given. Who is this person? You!

No, don't look around at the others in the audience, it's you! You have the great gifts of baptism, confirmation, and communion. How much more can you ask for? You have the weekly or daily gift of Jesus Christ Himself. What more is there? You have the grace of God and His Holy Spirit. What more is there to have?

You have been given much, and being obedient to the much you have been given, more will come to you. It is simply obedience. As you grow in faith, as you move toward God, you will grow more and move faster. Your prayer will form into action--you will come to love God's people and to have a passion for souls like that of St. Therese who hungered that all might know God.

That is you! You may think your faith is weak, and it is--but the faith of Jesus Christ who dwells within you, who shares His body as food, is strong and will bear you up and bring you home.
