Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

January 1, A.D. 2007


Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:



Numbers 6:22-27
Psalm 67:2-3, 5, 6, 8
Galatians 4:4-7
Luke 2:16-21



A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

When God sent His Son to earth for our redemption, He chose to do so through the cooperation of Mary. We know the beautiful story of the angel Gabriel, appearing to Mary and her agreeing to God's plan.

Every January 1st the Church honors the Blessed Mother and asks for her intercession on our behalf. The United States also has chosen Mary as our patroness. Should we not also ask our Blessed Mother to guide and protect us; not just in general, but to guide our families, our work and our prayer-life?

She knows our cares and concerns, as any mother would. Let us turn to her daily in this coming year. We can never underestimate the love of a mother!!!

"Hail Mary, Mother of God, intercede for us, now and at the hour of our death"

- Joan of Jesus, OCDS
