Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:
February 12, A.D. 2007
Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:
Genesis 4:1-15, 25
Psalm 50:1 and 8, 16bc-17, 20-21
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
How sad to hear in the gospel for today that Christ "sighed from the depth of His spirit" when the people were asking for signs. (Mark 8:11) It makes one wonder if our own actions cause Christ frustration and/or sadness.
We have an advantage over the people who lived in the time of Christ in that they had not experienced the reality of His horrendous death for our redemption and they had no way of realizing about His resurrection. We have that history, and yet even with it there are those seeking other evidence that Christ is God. Their search for signs continues.
Baptized Christians are to live as a "resurrection people," full of love, hope and faith, ready to pass the Good News on to others. We are to be the signs for others. How are we doing with that tremendous responsibility? We must remember that we don't do it on our own. We are to let Christ work in and through us.
Thy will be done in us, O Lord!
- Joan of Jesus, OCDS
