Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:
Psalm 23:1-3a, 3b-4, 5, 6
A reflection on today's Scripture:
Today on the solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus we have
Scripture selections that tell us about how God is for us a shepherd
cares and tends to our needs with great solicitude, patience and love.
It is striking that though it seems our ³tending² has been left in
of others who have sometimes led us astray, in the final analysis, God
rescue us. Certainly it would have been better if we never wandered,
into danger or trouble, but the reality is that we have! What we know
however is that God Himself will set things right‹find us, bind up
wounds and take over where others might have failed.
Do you relate to these images? Have you yourself not wished that
things were not left to the care and discretion of just anybody, but
overseen by an expert‹someone who really knows what he¹s doing and
cares that things are done exactly right?
This is the modern-day application that the today¹s scripture elicits
me. God is not just doing stuff because it¹s His job, He¹s not in it
money or prestige, and He doesn't pay just half-hearted attention to
requests and concerns, but listens and cares with His whole heart, His
Let us then have reason for hope, a reason for joy, and a reason to
because we are loved with love beyond all measure. The living heart of
God in the person of Jesus, loves us.
