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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

December 2, A.D. 2006

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Revelation 22:1-7
Psalm 95:1-2, 3-5, 6-7
Luke 21:34-36

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

Today is the last day of this liturgical year, and today’s Gospel could not be more appropriate as we begin Advent tomorrow and start our annual journey over once again.

In today’s Gospel, our Lord gives a warning that is just as much, if not more, applicable today than it was 2000 years ago. That message is plain and simple: do not get caught up in the stresses of our daily lives and be careful to not become absorbed by the excesses our world seems to offer. In our fast-paced culture, this warning is so true and our Lord tells us to be vigilant, awake and fully aware at all times. He encourages us to pray for strength to withstand all these things that we face in our world.

There is no better time as we prepare to start a new year to examine our lives and become fully aware of those things that cause us anxiety and also those things that take us from our one true focus. Pray for strength, and pray for one another as we end this year today.
