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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

May 21, A.D. 2007
Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Acts 19:1-8
Psalm 68:2-3ab, 4-5acd, 6-7ab
John 16:29-33

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

If ever there was a reassuring gospel, it is that of today!

Christ anticipates so many of the thoughts, feelings and realities that His followers will face. First He asks them to affirm their faith in Him, so that in the future when they might have doubts, they would recall that they did so. He predicts that they will "scatter" as we do day after day, and week after week, after we leave our "church" community.

We might think that we are alone out there in a world that does not always represent our values. Christ anticipates that we will have troubles, but reminds us that He has conquered the world. He assures us that He is not alone, in case we are worrying about that, in that He is always with our Father. And finally, He says His purpose in saying all of this is that we might have PEACE!

We have such a loving, caring, Savior! How can we ever feel alone on our respective missions? God is always with us!
