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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

December 6, A.D. 2006

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Isaiah 25:6-10a
Psalm 23:1-3a, 3b-4, 5, 6
Matthew 15:29-37

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

"My heart is moved with pity for the crowd . . . ."

This is our Lord, the King who was and is and is to come, the very King whose birth we await and who cannot come soon enough. Our Lord is moved with pity. He is concerned about every aspect of our lives. He was so concerned that He died to give us the bread from heaven, the food imperishable, the sustenance of the soul.

This Lord will not let us down. He will not let us go hungry. He will not let us listen to Him and walk away empty lest we collapse. Our Lord is a generous Lord and His commandment now is that we feed one another.

There are many ways to do this. The many writers of these meditations feed the hungry by opening up the scroll of the word of God and helping to make the feast rich. The readers of these words feed the hungry with their prayers, with their hands and hearts, with their patient, loving conversations, with their loving attentions. Those who do not hear these words, and who have not heard these words, hunger for them. When we share the Word, we share the Lord of all.

As we await His coming, patiently or impatiently, let us talk with Him and come to know Him so that we can make Him known to others. Let us feast on the Feast He has given us, His very self and become what we eat. We become for others the Word incarnate as we pass the words we hear and love on to them.
