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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

March 20, A.D. 2008

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Reading I: Exodus 12:1-8, 11-14
Psalm 116:12-13, 15-16bc, 17-18
Reading II: 1 Corinthians 11:23-26
Gospel: John 13:1-15

A reflection on today's Scripture:

As members of the Body of Christ, Jesus commands us to imitate Him and use the ordinary things that we have at our disposal to love and serve our neighbor.

On this Feast of the Lord's Last Supper, as we recall the night when Jesus instituted the Sacrament of the Eucharist, may He grant us the grace to do everything with great love.

Nourished by the food He gives usóHis own sacred Body and Bloodólet us become food for others, giving, like Him, the gift of ourselves. Little by little, we may begin to fulfill His command that like Him, so also, we should do.

Like bread and wine that became more than they appeared to be, so too will the little things we do out of love for our neighbor, in imitation of Christ, become more than they seem.

We remember! We celebrate! We believe!
