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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

December 21, A.D. 2006

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Song of Songs 2:8-14
Psalm 33:2-3, 11-12, 20-21
Luke 1:39-45

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

With only a few days before the birth of Christ the readings for today reflect the joyful expectation of the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. We cannot help but leap for joy with this upcoming birth. The first reading invites us to seek Christ out. Finding Christ can do nothing more than bring us joy.

Elizabeth was overjoyed to see Mary and even more so to be in the presence of the fruit of her womb, Jesus Christ. Elizabeth knew that she was in such presence because she knew how to listen to God. He speaks through us in so many different ways and when we simply listen for God we can find that He speaks to us in the most usual ways, thus tenderly making Himself a part of our everyday lives.
