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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

March 28, A.D. 2008

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Acts 4:1-12
Psalm 118:1-2 and 4, 22-24, 25-27a
John 21:1-14

A reflection on today's Scripture:

After Jesus' death and resurrection, His work was not yet done.

The disciples seemed to have given up and gone back to their old lives as fishermen in Galilee. The Lord had to get them moving again so the church could begin and spread throughout the world.

When Jesus first began His ministry He performed a miracle which allowed the disciples to catch a full net of fish. Now, to get the disciples going, He performed the miracle again and it is then that Peter, John and the others saw Jesus for who He really is.

It is interesting that the meal that Jesus shared with them after this second full-net miracle had overtones of the Eucharist. During a simple meal on this particular morning 1,975 years ago, the disciples recognized Jesus and saw Him as He really is. This happened again to other disciples on the road to Emmaus. During a simple meal of bread and wine today we recognize Him also and see His true divinity.

As we have been renewed through our Lenten journey, let us seek what Jesus has revealed to us in the Eucharist. See Him and rejoice in the risen Lord.
