Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

May 25, A.D. 2007

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Acts 25:13b-21
Psalm 103:1-2, 11-12, 19-20ab
John 21:15-19

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

Often when reading Holy Scripture, especially when reading texts selected by the Church for a particular day, we can be perplexed by what it all means and why the Church saw fit to present them. The First Reading today is a case in point. "Why," you might ask, "were just verses 13-21 singled out," as they rather leave us hanging about what happened next.

Are the selections part of a cleverly organized plan to motivate those who might be inclined to read and study further?

I have no answer, other than to believe that there is a hidden wisdom involved, a wisdom that goes beyond our ordinary appreciation and understanding. That is why we must approach Sacred Scripture with faith, certain that God in His love provides exactly what we need at every moment.

Pray then, ponder then, ask then for a sure and Holy Guide to unlock the Wisdom of God in His Sacred Word. Surely we won't be disappointed, won't be left ignorant of what is truly necessary for eternal life.

"Come Holy Spirit, and fill the hearts of Your faithful, and kindle in them the fire of Your Divine Love."
