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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

December 23, A.D. 2006

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Malachi 3:1-4, 23-24
Psalm 25:4-5ab, 8-9, 10 and 14
Luke 1:57-66

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

“Lift up your heads and see; your redemption is near at hand.”
(see Luke 21:28)

This has been our Advent message for these past few weeks. It is the same message Israel heard from the prophets for years before the Lord came. It will continue to be our message until He comes again.

Our Lord came as predicted only to be rejected by those who so anxiously awaited him. But His sacrifice was all in the Father’s plan and because of that sacrifice our redemption is always at hand. We no longer must wait for years, decades or centuries for our Savior to come. He is with us now and always.

Today lift up your heads and see. Your Savior is with you!
