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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

October 28, A.D. 2006

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Ephesians 2:19-22
Psalm 19:2-3, 4-5
Luke 6:12-16

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

"He spent the night in prayer to God."

A simple lesson today from a short gospel. As we see Jesus do, so should we do. And what is it that we see in today's gospel?

Before any major decision, Jesus secures time with His Father. He immerses himself in prayer and spends time there. Not a minute before the action is undertaken, not thirty seconds in the middle of doing something else. Because the days were so full of the mission, the only time available was the night. And because the decision was so important, the entire night was needed as Jesus brought each one of his disciples before the Father and like Jesse parading his sons before Samuel, presented each asking whether or not this one should be anointed.

So we must do. In each major event of our lives, time should be set aside--the entire night if needed, to pray and ask God His will in any given matter. If the decision is of moment, then consultation is necessary, and perhaps lengthy consultation. This job or that one, shall I marry this person, any matter that will change life for good and always.

As we see Jesus do, so devotion demands we do also. He is our Lord, He shows the way.
