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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

Octomber 19, A.D. 2007

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Romans 4:1-8
Psalm 32:1b-2, 5, 11
Luke 12:1-7

A reflection on today's Scripture:

Sometimes it is very difficult to write on a particular's day's Scripture passages. Often it is because I really don't understand what the message means, according to the teachings of the Church and I'm reluctant to write anything that might be misleading.

What to do?

Perhaps the most useful and accessible of all solutions is to pray with and over the Word of God that it might guide and direct us on the path laid before us, and that the sacred texts will be for us the food and sustenance for our journey.

Pray then that God might show us the way and give us what we need to be more holy and blameless in His sight. Then may we rejoice in thanksgiving and praise for God who does not leave us orphaned or abandoned, but stoops down from heaven to save us.

Don't be worried then, about what you don't understand, but rejoice in what you do understand!

"Are not five sparrows sold for two small coins?
Yet not one of them has escaped the notice of God.
Even the hairs of your head have all been counted.
Do not be afraid.
You are worth more than many sparrows." (Luke 12:6-7)
