Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:
October 25, A.D. 2006
Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:
Isaiah 12:2-3, 4bcd, 5-6
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
Jesus has trusted us with a great responsibility. This responsibility is taking the great gift He gave to us and sharing it with the entire world. In Matthew’s gospel, His last words were, “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” This is what we are charged with doing while He is away.
We do not know when He will return, but when He does will we hear Him ask us to join Him in eternity, or will some other fate be ours? Have we taken all that Jesus taught and told others of Him? Have we shared the complete love we experience? Have we forgiven all those who have offended us just as the Father has unconditionally forgiven us? Or, have we hidden our faith, treated others with hatred and failed to forgive for even minor offenses? The choice is ours, but as Jesus tells us in today’s gospel, eternity hinges on our choices.
