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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

November 24, A.D. 2007

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

1 Maccabees 6:1-13
Psalm 9:2-3, 4 and 6, 16 and 19
Luke 20:27-40

A reflection on today's Scripture:

Of the many things I have learned in my short life, one stands out clearer than any: the ways of God are much more complex than my small human mind can comprehend.

We are stuck here in a physical world that consists of what we manage to see, feel, taste, hear and smell. Beyond this, it takes our imagination to comprehend much. While our science has seemed to open up the atom as well as the universe to us, much is still theory and beyond what we can comprehend.

We find the same in the case of heaven. As children we are told of a heaven that really seems to be a lot like a nice place on earth. But I would submit that heaven is much more than this, in fact much more than we can comprehend it is. As our Lord tells us today, heaven is a place where we neither marry, nor die. What is it like? Well I cannot say for sure, but I know it is a place completely filled with Godís love and other than that, there is nothing more I need to know.
