Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:
September 9, A.D. 2006
Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:
1 Corinthians 4:6b-15
Psalm 145:17-18, 19-20, 21
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
"The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath . . . ."
Why should one remember the Sabbath and keep it Holy? Because Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, is master of the Sabbath. He is the welcoming face and hands of our family, friends, and neighbors. He is present in the sacrament of the Altar, and His presence makes Holy what is corrupt.
Jesus is the Lord of the Sabbath. He is the center of the world. When we celebrate the Lord of the Sabbath, we make every day Holy. Every day becomes a Sabbath when we celebrate the Lord of that Holy Day.
How do we celebrate? Daily Mass, if it is possible for us; Liturgy of the Hours, the fixed prayer of the church, our personal prayer as well; our patience persistence in loving a friend; our help for someone we don't know. We celebrate the Lord of the Sabbath whenever we do something for "one of these, the least of His brothers." Every time we abandon our own sorrows and burdens to help another person assume his, we are celebrating the Lord of the Sabbath.
Take a moment today and celebrate the Lord of the Sabbath--make this day Holy and build on it--one Holy day at a time.
