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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

March 28, A.D. 2007

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Daniel 3:14-20, 91-92, 95
Daniel 3:52, 53, 54, 55, 56
John 8:31-42

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

"If you remain in my word, you will truly be my disciples" (John 8:31)

And you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.

We want that freedom, oh, how we long for that freedom even though we do not really know it. Every fiber of our beings hungers for that freedom.

So how do we remain in His word? There are the literal ways--we can read, study, and pray the Word that reveals God and Jesus Christ to us. Daily dedication to Bible reading can keep us in the word.

Daily attendance at Mass exposes us to the Word of God in the liturgy of the word. We can take these words away from Mass with them and chew on them throughout the day--food of sweetest savor.

We can pray the Liturgy of the Hours day by day abiding in His word, hearing the love God has for us.

But we can also meet the Word in the persons of the poor, the underprivileged, the hurting, the oppressed, the hungry, the thirsty, those who long for the Lord and who do not have our advantage of knowing Him. We can meet the Word in the words of those people He sends us to tend to daily.

Being in the Word does not necessarily mean sitting in a corner with our noses stuck in books. Indeed, it could be the most engaging, challenging activity we take part in during a day.
