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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

February 9, A.D. 2007

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Genesis 3:1-8
Psalm 32:1-2, 5, 6, 7
Mark 7:31-37

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

Today's Gospel tells us something about Jesus that is very important, namely "He has done everything well."

It reminds us of the perfection of God, perfection that far exceeds the wonderful things of this earth--the perfect day, the perfect moment, the perfect outcome we have all experienced to some degree.

To think about the perfection of God helps increase our thirst and longing for Him and encourages us to mend our own faulty ways in matters that we well understand.

Well, too, is it for us to recall the words of the Act of Contrition, not just when we receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation, but frequently--daily as we examine our behavior in light of the everlasting:

". . . and I detest all my sins because I dread the loss of heaven and the pains of hell; but most of all because they offend Thee, my God, who are all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve with the help of Thy grace to confess my sins, to do penance and to amend my life. Amen"
